ADVOCATES FOR PERSONS WITH HIV/AIDS, HEMOPHILIA, HCV, AND SICKLE CELL
MONITORING THE BLOOD SUPPLY AND PROTECTING PATIENT RIGHTS SINCE 1989
The Committee of Ten Thousand is a grass-roots, peer-led, education, advocacy and support organization for persons with HIV disease. The majority of our constituency is persons with hemophilia who contracted HIV/AIDS from tainted blood products. We work in solidarity with all communities affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. COTT advocates for disenfranchised chronic disease communities, especially those communities dependent on a safe national blood supply. We are dedicated to the belief that persons with HIV/AIDS and all chronic diseases can lead productive and healthy lives.
