NMAC Launches National HIV Job Board
Recently, NMAC launched the Ending the Epidemics (ETE) Workforce jobs board for the healthcare workforce serving people living with and/or impacted by HIV, COVID-19, STI, viral hepatitis, and other associated illnesses.
The job board can be used by hiring managers and human resources directors at federal partners, health departments, community-based organizations, and advocacy groups dedicated to hiring people living with HIV and/or from communities affected by HIV to post open positions. The listings will include openings for clinicians, board director searches, executive level administrators, experienced professionals, beginning professionals, and interns.
“From the time NMAC was founded, we have strived to ensure that all communities have a seat at the table—not just those with greater opportunities and access to those in power,” NMAC Executive Director Paul Kawata said in a press release. “‘Thanks to our partners at the Human Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), we have taken a major step forward to realizing the full goal of the Denver Principles of meaningful involvement of people living with HIV. The Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative will not succeed without creating a pathway for our constituents to enter into the workforce.”
“We cannot sit idly by and hope that systems improve,” said Ace Robinson, Director of the NMAC Training Center to End the Epidemics at NMAC. “We must be willing to not just dismantle the systems that have led to systemic oppression, but also to build new systems from the ground up to realize the change that we hope to see. Our constituents deserve nothing less.”
