AACO EHE Presentation for Philadelphia Fight
JUNE 1, 2020
Above, you will find the PowerPoint (PDF) from AACO's presentation with Philadelphia FIGHT all about the Ending the HIV Epidemic Plan.
Here is a description of the presentation:
"In Philadelphia, reducing new HIV infections and improving health outcomes for People Living with HIV (PLWH) remains a challenge. Despite steady declines in new HIV diagnoses, Philadelphia is one of 48 counties in the U.S. with the highest number of new HIV diagnoses with significant differences between community populations.
In early 2019, the federal government announced the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) initiative with aims to decrease new HIV diagnoses by 75% by 2025 and by 90% by 2030. Through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the City of Philadelphia received funding for a one-year process to develop a local EHE plan.
This interactive presentation will present the local draft plan to end the HIV epidemic specific to the needs of Philadelphia. Additionally, this presentation will share the development and approach of sustained engagement led by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to promote community-centered innovation and transform a mature health delivery system to address the local HIV epidemic. Future directions and implications for HIV services, including prevention, treatment, and educational programming will also be discussed."
