Black AIDS Institute Hosts Black Healthcare Access Tour

The Black AIDS Institute has kicked off the first-ever national Black Healthcare Access Tour. Over the next 6 weeks, the Institute will be travelling to 17 cities to promote open enrollment by educating communities, mobilizing advocates, and increasing awareness around the current healthcare discussion happening in Washington.

At each tour stop, Black AIDS Institute will inform Black communities about important and pertinent aspects of the Affordable Care Act; the threats that Trumpcare and the actions of this administration pose to accessible care; and finally, how we as citizens can fight for the access to quality healthcare we not only deserve, but are entitled to.

This tour follows the national Open Enrollment period, which is open from November 1st – December 15th. The Institute will answer questions about paying for insurance and help community members find the plan that is affordable for them.
