The ISU Global Health & AIDS Coalition is an organization that advocates for policies in the political arena that are favorable toward increased access to medications and healthcare. While keeping politicians accountable to the promises they make, we also educate ourselves and promote awareness on campus about the resource constraints and pervasive disparities in global health. Because of the new nature of the club, there is a lot of room for involvement and learning.
This organization has no affiliations.

Description of Regular Meetings/Activities
|The ISU Global Health & AIDS Coalition focuses on education, creating awareness, and advocacy concerning global health issues, in particular HIV/AIDS. Meetings are focused on education about global health disparities and the factors that contribute to human health. In addition to meetings, the club hosts World Aids Awareness Week each December, The HIV/AIDS Monologues in the spring, and engages with our local legislators to ensure that public health and global health programs like PEPFAR and the Global Fund continue to be supported.
Description of Special Events

The events will consist of: Day With(out) Art, which is an event to honor artists who have passed and are still living with HIV/AIDS; a documentary showing; and potentially bringing in a guest lecturer.
