The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) and POZ Magazine Partner to Launch The Denver Principles Project
Date:3/2/2009

- As HIV/AIDS epidemic expands in the U.S, NAPWA and POZ reinvigorate AIDS activism -

WASHINGTON, March 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) and POZ magazine today announced the launch of a new initiative known as The Denver Principles Project. The project aims to encourage a community-wide recommitment to the historic Denver Principles -- a self-empowerment manifesto written in 1983 by a group of people living with HIV/AIDS -- with the ultimate goal of strengthening the voice of people with HIV by increasing NAPWA membership to 100,000 by December 1, 2009, World AIDS Day.

More than 25 years into the epidemic, HIV/AIDS continues to take a tremendous toll on the United States. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently reported it underestimated the incidence of new HIV infections in 2006. Data now show approximately 56,300 new HIV infections occurred in 2006 versus the previously estimated 40,000. According to the CDC, more than 1.1 million people were living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. at the end of 2006, and approximately 25 percent were not aware of their HIV status.

"As the HIV epidemic continues to expand in America, affecting all communities regardless of race, gender or sexuality, people living with HIV need a trusted, united voice to represent their diverse needs," says Frank Oldham, Jr., NAPWA's president and CEO. "NAPWA and POZ are joining forces in The Denver Principles Project to amplify the voice of all Americans living with HIV."

The Denver Principles, originally developed in 1983, require that the voices of people living with HIV be heard. It asserts the right of people living with HIV to participate in the decision-making processes -- at all levels -- that fundamentally affect their lives.

"With a vastly increased membership, NAPWA will be better able to advocate for effective HIV prevention
