Hurricane Harvey Shutters AIDS Foundation Houston

Plus: How people with HIV can prepare for and survive a natural disaster

August 29, 2017
Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey has displaced tens of thousands of Texans and shuttered countless businesses, including AIDS Foundation Houston. According to the AFH website, the nonprofit service organization will tentatively reopen on Tuesday, September 5.
 .  
AFH serves over 200 people living with HIV and residing in six housing programs. Although the storm has damaged some of the housing, AFH’s current clients are safe. Nevertheless, writes the group, “there are people living with HIV/AIDS who have been displaced from their homes and will need emergency shelter, food and other basic needs.”
.
AFH is now accepting emergency donations for clients displaced by Harvey. The organization writes: “Please consider making a donation to AIDS Foundation Houston as we strive to provide safe housing, food pantry services, and other support services to people living with HIV/AIDS in Houston. Our biggest immediate needs are funds to make building repairs to our housing programs and to stock our food pantry.”
.
Although the AHF site includes emergency resource information, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) website includes a page on disaster preparedness specifically for people taking HIV medications. It lists the steps to take before a disaster strikes (hint: keep a copy of your medical information and be sure your prescriptions are up to date) and what to do when instructed to evacuate. The Texas DSHS has also been tweeting directions for people who have lost their HIV medications during the storm:
.
According to End HIV Houston, a collaborative effort of HIV leaders to fight the local epidemic, about 22,500 people are living with the virus in the Houston area (12th in the nation for new cases of HIV), and Texas has 4 million uninsured residents, the highest in the country.
.
In the wake of the hurricane, End HIV Houston is assisting people living with the virus. Visit the website or email publicaffairs@legacycommunityhealth.org for information on how you can help.
.
For more lessons on emergency preparedness, check out the firsthand tips from HIV-positive survivors of natural disasters in the POZ article “How to…Survive a Disaster.”
.
HIV advocates have also been sharing related tips on social media: FACEBOOK, TWITTER.
.
LGBT newspaper The Washington Blade offers a rundown on LGBT-related relief funds to help storm victims, including the Trans Disaster Relief Fund.

 MAGIC JOHNSON to Speak at WORLD AIDS MUSEUM on NOVEMBER 7

Earvin “Magic” Johnson in collaboration with CLEAR HEALTH ALLIANCE will be our special guest at the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center’s new building space which is under development. This event is a news conference and photo opportunity open by invitation to all museum donors. Photographs with MAGIC will be taken for the museum’s FOUNDING MEMBERS ($1,200 donors).

 Coincidentally, it was 22 years ago exactly on November 7, 1991 that Magic Johnson announced to the world that he was HIV positive. He has since contributed millions of dollars and helped countless numbers of people all over the world living with HIV and AIDS.  Magic is a shining example of leadership and courage. We are honored to have him dedicate the museum.

 Contact us at (954) 815-2550 to become a donor and take advantage of being listed on the exclusive list of FOUNDING MEMBERS of the world’s first and only museum dedicated to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.  You can also DONATE online by visiting www.WorldAidsMusuem.Org. This FOUNDING MEMBER donation category will be closed upon the opening of the museum.

 Doors will open at 2:30 PM for the reception, presentation and photo session on November 7, 2013 at the WORLD AIDS MUSUEM located at WILTON STATION, 1201 NE 26th Street, Suite 111, Wilton Manors, Florida, 33305.  

Special thanks to CLEAR HEALTH ALLIANCE and Hugh Beswick, Board Chair, for his diligent work in securing the honor of having Magic Johnson at this event.

World AIDS Museum (WAM) Leases Building

WAM took possession of a 2,200 square foot leased building space on September 1 at the Wilton Station complex in Wilton Manors, FL. Design work is in progress on what will become the world’s first museum dedicated to HIV/AIDS.  This was made possible by a generous grant awarded by the John C. Graves Fund’s advisors Dean Trantalis, Richard Salomon and Carl Trough.  The museum expects to officially open this winter with exhibit space created under the direction of WAM Exhibit Director David Friedland.

Community HIV/AIDS Non-Profit Organizations hosted by Museum

WAM hosted a reception for the HIV/AIDS community non-profit organizations and major donors on September 12 at the new leased space for the upcoming museum at the Wilton Station.  Over 100 guests previewed the new museum space which is about to undergo extensive preparations to open this winter.  Speakers included WAM President and CEO Steve Stagon and Board Chairman Hugh Beswick.  Guests were very excited about the space and the history that will be made upon the museum opening.  A special thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make the evening so special.

Stephen Crohn

 

As his companion and many friends died in the AIDS epidemic, Stephen Crohn wondered why he never got sick. The answer was in his genes. He helped advance research but was haunted by survivor’s guilt.

Was it just a matter of time before he caught the human immunodeficiency virus that causes AIDS? Was there something wrong with the HIV antibody tests he took that always came back negative?

Crohn, an artist and freelance editor, lived with the questions for 14 years before he finally learned the answer was in his genes.

In 1996, scientists in New York studying Crohn’s blood cells discovered he had a genetic mutation that made his cells impregnable to the AIDS virus. The discovery made international headlines, with Crohn spotlighted as “the man who can’t catch AIDS.”
