Recognizing that we now have evidence-based tools for HIV treatment and prevention that are so effective they could conceivably end the most deadly infectious disease epidemic in modern history, Treatment Action Group (TAG) has released a new web resource: Plan to END the HIV/AIDS Epidemic.
Many community leaders across the United States are calling for just that: an end to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in their cities, their counties, and their states. In many ways, this is a paradigm shift – rather than asking for unambitious, incremental progress in reducing new infections and increasing viral suppression rates, communities of activists, service providers, health departments, elected officials, people living with HIV and other key stakeholders are doing the work to create ambitious and bold plans to improve the health outcomes of all people living with and vulnerable to the virus and to drive HIV/AIDS below epidemic levels.
Featured on TAG’s website, the resource walks through several key aspects of Ending the Epidemic (EtE) strategies, with examples of existing plans and development tools to help start or continue similar initiatives in virtually all U.S. jurisdictions.
