The American College of Preventive Medicine is honored to be selected by the Centers for Disease Control as a member of the Partnering and Communicating Together (PACT) multi-year initiative to amplify the CDC’s Let’s Stop HIV Together (Together) campaign, which aims to reduce new HIV infections by promoting testing, prevention, treatment strategies and ending HIV stigma.
It has been 40-years since the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) reported the first discovered case of HIV. Since June of 1981, 32 million people have died from HIV worldwide.
US Department of Health and Human Services approximates that 1.2 million people live with HIV in the United States.
Per 2019 data, the CDC states that HIV disproportionately affects Black (42 percent, n = 15,340) and Hispanic/Latino (29 percent, n = 10,502) groups.
Join ACPM to reduce new HIV infection by 90 percent by 2030 and reach communities most impacted by HIV through prevention measures, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), early diagnosis, effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) treatment, and interventions that address the dual epidemics of substance use and HIV.
You can help promote the Together campaign to patients and colleagues using these available resources and graphics.
Are you interested in learning more about how you can help ACPM promote HIV prevention? Join us and promote our initiatives or attend an educational opportunity to expand your skillset. As healthcare professionals, we can make a difference in the care and prevention of HIV.
