Getting to Zero Illinois
Getting to Zero Illinois is a plan to eliminate cases of HIV infection in the state, reaching less than 100 new cases a year by 2030.
While incidents of HIV infection have dropped 28% in the last 10 years, the Getting to Zero plan argues that the state has the resources to reach a functional zero. The project looks at what can be done within the next five years not only in healthcare but in cultural stigmas as well, with a focus on the most at-risk groups. Some key areas of focus are an increase in use of preventative pills and increasing access to and knowledge of healthcare.
