All of ACRIA’s publications are produced by the HIV Health Literacy Program (HHLP). Promoting HIV health literacy has been central to ACRIA’s program philosophy since the organization’s inception. All of our projects and activities communicate the most up-to-date information about HIV in language that is accessible to both caregivers and people living with HIV, educating them about the available treatment options and empowering them to participate actively in their own healthcare. ACRIA’s library of publications includes a variety of HIV health literacy education resources in both English and Spanish, including Achieve and our topic-specific educational booklets, all available on this site.
ACRIA’s signature publication, Achieve, reaches tens of thousands of people around the world each year. Every issue of Achieve contains a host of articles on a single theme, written by experts and accessible to providers and laypeople alike, along with “Personal Perspectives” that bring the issues to life. Achieve gives special attention to prevention, treatment and access to care. Additionally, the publication features discussions of the policy implications of relevant medical, health and social issues that directly affect persons with and at-risk of HIV and those who serve them. In the past year, approximately 28,000 copies of each issue of Achieve in English, as well as 5,000 copies in Spanish, were distributed to all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico; every country in Latin America and the Caribbean; and countries on five continents.
