Policy Brief: Minority AIDS Initiative
The Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) was created in 1998 by the U.S. government to respond to growing concern about the impact of HIV/AIDS on racial and ethnic minorities. It provides funding to strengthen organizational capacity and expand HIV-related services in minority communities. This new policy brief provides an overview of the MAI, including a discussion of its creation, goals, administration, and funding history, and a summary of current issues and challenges based on interviews with key stakeholders.
