Statements
Mission The Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund provides support, education, advocacy, and resources to end the HIV and AIDS epidemic.
Background

The Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund was organized by Barbara and Jackie Cooper following the death of their son to AIDS. Dealing with this devastating disease firsthand compelled them to reach out to others living with HIV/AIDS and those vulnerable to the disease.  Their friends, Toni Wizenberg, Steve Daniels, Richard May, Patricia Edwards and James Vallion formed the founding board. 

Impact
Our goal is to reduce new HIV transmissions and AIDS related deaths in the 54 counties of central and western Oklahoma.

Description
Through our HIV Prevention & Care Program the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund advances innovation, reduces stigma, and guides policies that address the statewide coordinated statement of need. In addition we partner with 25 organizations to monitor gaps in health care and specific issues that impact the public health in Oklahoma. This program also provides direct services to over 30,000 non-duplicated individuals annually through educational outreach events and awareness activities. We also provide the following resources in the community:
  • 3,000 safer sex kits distributed at outreach events and through targeted distribution sites in the most at-risk areas across the state.
  • 2,500 test kits utilized at free testing sites throughout the state. Last year nearly 300 individuals were newly diagnosed and linked to care. Of these, 80% are still engaged in care and have a suppressed viral load and effectively have no risk of transmitting the virus. 
  • One-time emergency assistance to 250 persons living with HIV/AIDS to cover transportation, medical treatment and prescriptions not covered by insurance, and vision/dental services. The emergency assistance support is provided when all funding resources have been exhausted and serves to eliminate barriers preventing individuals from taking medications and staying in treatment.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. Last year 30,000 non-duplicated individuals were provided HIV prevention and education on how to reduce risk. 
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Since 1992, the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund has contributed over $14 million in funding and resources to assist Oklahomans living with HIV/AIDS. Last year nearly 300 individuals were newly diagnosed and linked to care. Of these, 80% are still engaged in care and have a suppressed viral load and effectively have no risk of transmitting the virus.  
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. We track the number of new HIV transmissions and AIDS related deaths annually. Over 1/3 of all diagnosis of an HIV transmission in Oklahoma are detected by our test kits. We can directly see the impact of our program when HIV transmissions and AIDS-related deaths change.  
Description
Our Advocacy program oversees the Oklahoma HIV and AIDS Advocacy Coalition.  The Advocacy Coalition has five main goals that include the following. Each of these goals are measured by surveys, tracking increases in available funding, legislative tracking, and epidemiology reports of new infections rates from the State Health Department.
  1. Working with community leaders and educating elected officials about HIV/AIDS and the importance of public funding, positive policy change and legislation.
  2. Working with the Oklahoma State Health Department to develop a unified message in an effort to protect critical Ryan White Funding in Oklahoma and access any additional dollars available. 
  3. Capacity building and promoting grassroots advocacy training to help reduce HIV-related stigma, health disparities and inequities in Oklahoma.
  4. Increasing access to care and improved health outcomes for people living with HIV in Oklahoma.
  5. Implementing an HIV Awareness Day at the State Capitol and fostering a positive presence during session.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.

The education health mandate has not been updated since 1987. The language in the current law is offensive and does not reflect a modern understanding of HIV. Our goal for the 2019 session is to champion a rewrite of the statute and modernize what is covered in the classroom. A lot has changed since 1987 and we now have a much better understanding of HIV and AIDS. HIV and AIDS are not “big city” problems and the virus does not only affect one population. HIV and AIDS are public health matters we should all be focused on solving.

Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.

Throughout the 2019 legislative session we plan to continue to track and advocate to defeat discriminatory pieces of legislation, and support legislation that seeks to reduce health disparities and funding for the Oklahoma Department of Health’s HIV/AIDS programs and Oklahoma Department of Human Services’ AIDS Coordination and Information Services program. We will continue to cultivate citizen advocates from across the state and empower them with the knowledge and skills to present key talking points and share personal stories with elected officials.

Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. We monitor success through attendance at our rallies at the Capitol, in addition to media coverage including editorials and articles in statewide news media.
