What

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is launching a new communication campaign under its Act Against AIDS initiative—HIV Treatment Works. This national HIV prevention campaign seeks to encourage people living with HIV to get in care, start taking HIV medications, remain in care, and adhere to treatment. You’re invited to a special launch event to introduce the new HIV Treatment Works campaign.

Who

Speakers and panelists include representatives from CDC, HHS, national community engagement partner ACRIA, local public health officials, and campaign participants.

Why

More than 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV. Ensuring that all those living with HIV are successfully treated is critical to improve their overall health and reduce the risk of transmitting HIV to their partners. HIV Treatment Works provides access to information and resources to help increase the proportion of people living with HIV that enters and remains in care. Through this campaign, CDC is supporting an essential goal of the National AIDS Strategy – the White House's Continuum of Care Initiative – which seeks to increase HIV testing, care, and treatment to better address dropoffs along the continuum of HIV care and increase the proportion of individuals in each stage along the continuum.
