A statement from TPAN:
I want to tell you how much your support and advocacy mean to us at TPAN. Your faith and support are especially critical at this time.
As news surrounding COVID-19 continues to unfold, we hold firm in our commitment to safeguard people affected by HIV including the many LGBTQ individuals, at-risk youth, and vulnerable older adults who turn to us for care, information, and support.
This week's developments bring home a new reality: We face a national and global crisis. In our everyday work, we're looking out for our clients, community and all persons living with HIV who may be more vulnerable.
Our main concern is that everyone, particularly people living with HIV, takes the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones. As a leading national provider of HIV-related health news, we've compiled some important information and a list of resources that can be helpful. We wanted to address the most common questions and concerns of our clients and readers.

Our community knows how to rally in a crisis like this. We've been here before. We fought against stigma, inaction, and a lack of resources when HIV and AIDS first emerged. We will come through this challenge in the same way with the resilience, vigilance, hard work, and care expertise that have made TPAN and Positively Aware go-to resources for thousands of people.
Please know that our clients, community, and all who are affected by HIV have support and resources at TPAN, thanks to you. And, thank you for thinking of the more vulnerable persons we serve. You strengthen the lifeline we provide to so many.
Please take care of yourselves and each other.
Director of Publications and Editor, Positively Aware
