The effort is managed by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Black AIDS Institute in coordination with the CDC’s Act Against AIDS initiative. Additional funding support is provided by the Ford Foundation, the MAC AIDS Fund, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation. To (un)subscribe, send a message to greaterthan@kff.org
