This letter to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requests that networks of people living with HIV (PLHIV) be involved in determining molecular HIV surveillance (MHS) policy. The letter was sent on October 17, 2023, the one-year anniversary of the passage of a resolution by the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) demanding collaboration with PLHIV.

The letter was endorsed by 110 organizations and networks of PLHIV. It calls out the harm caused by long-standing policies that compromise the fundamental rights of communities most affected by HIV, especially LGBTQ+ and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
