Soundbar Presents the 2019 AVOL HIV Legacy Walk and Funday Sunday Party!

Please join us on April 28th for this year's HIV Legacy Walk, downtown Lexington at the Stephens Courthouse Plaza.

2019 AVOL Legacy Sponsor: Advantage Air HVAC

HIV Legacy Walk sponsored by UK HealthCare, Pride Community Services Organization, Hicks and Funfsinn Kentucky Lawyers, Haunters Against Hate, Kentucky Bourbon Bears, Lexington Fairness, Gilead Sciences, Charles T. Mitchell Accountants, Alliance Medical and Home Care, Salomon & Company, Lexington Clinic Foundation, Jeff Johnson and Ken Michael, and Besten & Dieruf CPAs.

Together, we have the Power to END HIV in Kentucky! and together we will be taking giant steps toward our goal on April 28th. 

Never before since we began our work in 1987, have the tools available to us been so effective. We now know that people living with extremely low levels of HIV will not pass the virus along to others. This “viral suppression” involves many factors, most important of which is that persons living with HIV remain engaged in medical care and medication adherence. AVOL's housing, support and empowerment services have proven to reinforce support and adherence leading to viral suppression. PrEP, an effective once daily pill taken to prevent the transmission of HIV, is becoming more and more accessible. These efforts, along with traditional tried and true approaches like increasing access to testing, advocating condom use, education, reducing barriers, and raising awareness, together we can End HIV in Kentucky.
