Michael Kaplan President and CEO AIDS United For AIDS United President and CEO Michael Kaplan, working in HIV/AIDS is not just a job, it is a life calling. A calling that he has had since shortly after testing positive for HIV in 1992, when he was just 23 years old. Just finishing up his graduate degree at the time of his HIV diagnosis, Kaplan decided he wanted to focus on issues related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth. But with time, he realized that he could not focus on LGBTQ youth without addressing HIV, which has disproportionately impacted the community since the epidemic's beginning. Kaplan has served as AIDS United's President and CEO since December 1, 2012. Prior to AIDS United, he was the Executive Director of Cascade AIDS Project (CAP), the largest and oldest AIDS service organization serving Oregon and South West Washington. During his four year tenure at CAP, Kaplan led the organization through a re-organization that resulted in reduced operating costs, expanded programming and increased revenue through fundraising and development efforts. Under his leadership, CAP was rated by its employees as one of the best 100 non-profits to work for in Oregon in 2010, 2011 & 2012. Kaplan's previous work has included several senior management positions at the Academy for Educational Development (AED), including Vice President for International HIV/AIDS Programs. His work in the LGBTQ community included Deputy Director of the National Youth Advocacy Coalition in Washington, D.C., and founding Executive Director of District 202 in Minneapolis, MN, a youth center by and for LGBTQ youth. He has served on the Board of Directors of several organizations focusing on everything from HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ issues, to behavior health care and nonprofit management. Kaplan is encouraged by the recent advances that are being made in the HIV field, and is more determined than ever to ensuring that those advances are advocated for, promoted and implemented.


AIDS United Calls for Scale-Up of PrEP

"Our scientific knowledge that PrEP works and is a substantial tool to prevent HIV just keeps getting stronger," said Michael Kaplan, president and CEO of AIDS United, a nonprofit dedicated to ending the AIDS epidemic in the United States through strategic grant-making, capacity building, formative research and policy.
PrEP will be part of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic - but only if we can implement it widely," said Kaplan.

'Patient Voice' Missing from Healthcare Spending Conversation | Partners For Better Care

partnersforbettercare.org [cached]

Along with beneficiary incentives, it is important to include the patient voice in discussing methods payers can take when battling chronic disease and educating customers on health plan options, explained Michael Kaplan, President and CEO of AIDS United.
When the patient is satisfied and engaged, it could lead to better outcomes and essentially decreased healthcare spending. "I would say that the most important part is engaging in a dialogue," Kaplan told HealthPayerIntelligence.com. "I remember not too long ago, there was a new head of Pharma and payers were creating a dialogue." "The one thing missing was the patient voice," he continued.
