About the Organization
Founded in May of 1999, the Black AIDS Institute (BAI) is the only national HIV/AIDS think tank focused exclusively on Black people. The Institute’s mission is to stop the AIDS pandemic in Black communities by engaging and mobilizing Black leaders, institutions, and individuals, in efforts to confront HIV. BAI disseminates information; advocates for sound, inclusive, culturally responsive public and private sector health policies; offers training and capacity building; provides health screening for HIV/STI/Hep C and other chronic and infectious diseases, and linkage to inclusive Black centered primary health care; and conducts advocacy and mobilization from a uniquely and unapologetically Black point of view.

The successful candidate must be a proven fundraiser, compelling storyteller, communicator, pitcher, and avid social networker, who wants to use those skills to advance bold health goals and ensure health care access to vulnerable communities.
