WHAT DOES AIDS-FREE MEAN?

With today’s data, science, and health-care access, we can end AIDS as an epidemic in NY State by 2020 even without a cure—by dramatically reducing the number of new HIV infections and by bringing those living with HIV/AIDS to optimal health.

 

HOW WE GET TO AN AIDS-FREE NY BY 2020

BY FIGHTING FOR:

  • 21st Century HIV Testing & Data Sharing 
  • Access to All Prevention & Treatment Tools 
  • The Bridging of Current Gaps at ALL Stages of HIV Care 
  • Housing as Healthcare & other essential services 
  • Shared Commitment with Government & Partners through Full Funding and Implementation of the Ending the Epidemic Blueprint
