She oversees public information campaigns with leading media companies and other public and private sector partners in the U.S. and abroad to address pressing health issues, most notably HIV/AIDS and related topics.
Among Ms. Hoff’s current efforts are Greater Than AIDS, a leading national initiative focused on the U.S. domestic epidemic, and It’s Your (Sex) Life, a long standing partnership with MTV to address sexual health issues facing young people.

The meeting led to the development to large-scale regional coalitions in Africa, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Latin America, among elsewhere.
