The OOOT strategy is driven by our steering committee which includes but is not limited to shared leadership and the lending of expert knowledge to develop and implement strategies to impact dialogue, programming, and policy that affect Black women and their HIV vulnerability while ensuring women living with HIV have access to equitable treatment and care. This initiative draws on the very latest thinking, research, and practical ideas from these organizations on how to support Black women in being catalysts for their own health.
