Getting to Zero Illinois is a state-wide initiative to end the HIV epidemic in the state by 2030. Through partnerships with community-based organizations, health care providers, government agencies, people living with HIV and others, we can dramatically shift HIV in Illinois.
We want to make sure that the HIV epidemic is no longer able to sustain itself by achieving both HIV prevention and access to care goals.
We want to see:
- Zero new HIV transmissions
- Zero people living with HIV who are not receiving treatment
Through increasing access and uptake of PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), retaining more people living with HIV in care and the continued funding of ongoing supportive services, we can get to zero.
