Outlook Ohio News: Ohio AIDS Coalition Ending Operation At End of March
In July of 2016, the Ohio AIDS Coalition (OAC), a division of Equitas Health, announced that it would cease operations effective March 31, 2017. This decision was due to elimination of grant funding which was the primary source of financial support for OAC consumer programs and initiatives. While this was a difficult reality to accept, the OAC staff have worked with consumers, providers and community partners to help prepare for this transition.
Equitas Health is committed to ensuring that OAC’s 30+ years of HIV/AIDS advocacy and policy work continues to move forward and will do so through Equitas Health’s government affairs and public policy initiatives and the work of the Equitas Health Institute.
The Positive Youth Leadership Summit and the Transforming Care Conference will continue under the direction of the Equitas Health Institute’s HIV/AIDS initiatives.
All OAC staff have found new positions within Equitas Health or at other organizations prior to the grant ending.
