This issue brief describes the findings from interviews with health insurance counselors and other stakeholders about problems consumers face in selecting and using health insurance. It also lays out a strategy to develop an important new tool: a measure of health insurance literacy.
The New Year will be critical for one of the health care reform law’s most significant provisions: the creation of health insurance exchanges. These new virtual marketplaces allow consumers and small business to comparison shop for health insurance, increasing coordination and simplifying access to affordable health insurance.
AIR works to build awareness about the ongoing risk of HIV/AIDS, especially the long odds in high-risk communities. AIR’s Health Program translates HIV research into effective communication for the general public, working with partners such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
On July 23, 2012, AIR convened a special evening of reflection, discussion, and engagement to shine the light on the state of HIV/AIDS in the American South. The event marked the premiere of the documentary deepsouth, which showcases women and men living with and fighting HIV in the rural South, and addresses some of the broader social and political issues that plague this region in crisis.
