“As we culminate our 30th anniversary and enter a new era of providing holistic health care services and advocacy for the Latino community in New York, the South, and across the country, we are so grateful to have the participation of Miss Universe Andrea Meza and we welcome her to the family!,” said Guillermo Chacon, president of the Latino Commission on AIDS and founder of the Hispanic Health Network.

He also mentioned, “I want to thank the Miss Universe Organization for continuing their commitment to our cause. It is with such dedication and recommitment to education, prevention and stigma reduction efforts that we can ultimately end HIV and design a world without AIDS.”

Addressing her induction, Andrea said, “I am motivated by the Commission’s attention to continuing its work to educate our youth and new generations about how to prevent HIV infection and access treatment if needed. While it’s been 40 years since the initial case of AIDS was discovered, the virus is still among us and I want to encourage everyone who is sexually active to know the facts about HIV and to get tested.”

“I am deeply honored to join in support of the Latino Commission on AIDS and its mission to defeat HIV and AIDS as its official Madrina – or Godmother,” she also added. Andrea will also be introduced as the Commission’s Madrina at this year’s Cielo Gala, taking place in person on Friday, October 15, 2021, at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. The Cielo Gala is an important platform to recognize the work of those who support the Commission’s goals of ending HIV and AIDS and improving overall health outcomes and wellness for the Hispanic/Latino community.

The queen continues to soar high and inspire with her hard work and dedication towards the society. Congratulations queen!
