An important aspect of SAFE activities for those with HIV is developing new partnerships with organizations that historically have not been involved in HIV prevention and expanding traditional public health partners. The CDC has mobilized a public-private partnership, "X-AIDS ACT NOW! National Partnership Council," to fight the epidemic. More than 50 organizations, including medical care organizations, the pharmaceutical industry, private industry, and the media, as well as national and community-based HIV prevention organizations, make up the core of the partnership. These organizations are creating alliances that will motivate, coordinate, and direct private sector resources to address the specific needs of SAFE.
