National AIDS Treatment Advocacy Project
NATAP is a New York State non-profit corporation with 501(c)3 Federal tax-exempt status. Our mission is to educate individuals about HIV and hepatitis treatments and to advocate on the behalf of all people living with HIV/AIDS and HCV. Our efforts in these areas are conducted on local, national, and international levels. Locally, NATAP collaborates with other organizations as well as city and state agencies to bring treatment education to our communities. Nationally, NATAP works with federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health and advocates on policy and treatment issues. Jules Levin, our Executive Director, is a community representative to the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) and the HIV Disease Research Agenda Committee (RAC) of the ACTG, where the federal government conducts its HIV research. The treatment information that NATAP provides reaches medical professionals, allied professionals, patients, caregivers, underserved communities, and other interested parties in over 40 countries.
