Laying a Foundation for Getting to Zero: California’s Integrated HIV Surveillance, Prevention and Care Plan

As a result of recent scientific, biomedical, and policy advances, including studies showing that early HIV treatment reduces the risk of onward HIV transmission by 96% while simultaneously improving health outcomes, federal Food and Drug Administration approval of the first medication for HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), widespread adoption of new HIV testing technology able to detect acute HIV infection much earlier, and implementation of the Affordable Care Act, we can now begin to envision a California with zero new HIV infections. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Office of AIDS, in partnership with the Riverside/San Bernardino, Sacramento, and San Jose Transitional Grant Areas and in collaboration with the California Planning Group, Inland Empire HIV Planning Council, Sacramento Transitional Grant Area HIV Health Services Planning Council, and Santa Clara HIV Planning Council, has developed a Statewide Coordinated Statement of Need and an Integrated Plan as required by our federal funders, the Health Resource Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We will use this plan to lay the foundation for a Getting to Zero in California.
