          Nevada Initiatives

          During the State of the Union Address, the President reported that the HIV epidemic in the United States would be eliminated within 10 years. For the first time ever, we have evidence-based tools in HIV treatment and prevention that are so effective, we can end the epidemic.  By focusing on the biomedical, social, and psychological models, we can eliminate new HIV infections, eliminate HIV related deaths, and eliminate HIV related stigma. The HIV Prevention Program and the Ryan White Program are guided by the principles of public health and social equity. They are driven by the mission to promote health and reduce both both impact and incidence of HIV/AIDS by working in partnership with other agencies and diverse community groups. Together we can get to zero – Zero New Infections,  Zero New Deaths, Zero HIV Related Stigma.
