New John M. Lloyd AIDS Leadership Award Recognizes Visionary Advocate

LOS ANGELES, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The John M. Lloyd Foundation announced today that AIDS advocate Gregg Gonsalves has been selected as the first-ever recipient of the $100,000 John M. Lloyd AIDS Leadership Award.

An AIDS activist for 17 years, Gonsalves has played a major role in international efforts to accelerate AIDS research and improve access to lifesaving drugs. He is currently based in Cape Town, South Africa, where he coordinates a regional AIDS and TB treatment advocacy program.

"We created this award to recognize and support the 'unsung heroes' of AIDS activism, and Gregg certainly fits the bill," said Melanie Havelin, Executive Director of the John M. Lloyd Foundation. "Gregg's visionary work on behalf of people living with HIV has had a major global impact."

"This award was totally unexpected," said Gregg Gonsalves. "I am humbled by the honor. The John M. Lloyd Foundation has been a tremendous champion in the fight to defeat AIDS and promote social justice across the world, and to be honored by them in this way is special to me. But in the end, it is important to keep focused on the fact that the AIDS epidemic continues to cut a vicious swath of devastation through our communities, and each of us has to redouble our efforts if we are to beat this disease."

Gonsalves coordinates regional AIDS and TB treatment literacy and advocacy programs for the AIDS and Rights Alliance of Southern Africa, a network of African AIDS and human rights organizations. He is also a founding member of the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition, a network of more than 1000 people from 125 countries advocating for universal access to HIV/AIDS and TB treatment.

Gonsalves was formerly Director of Treatment and Prevention Advocacy for Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) and co-founder of the Treatment Action Group, both in New York City. Prior to that, he was
