The topic this Wednesday May 6, 2015 is New York Governor Cuomo’s plan to end the AIDS epidemic in New York state. Click here to read article. This is the Three-Point Plan:
1. Identifying people with HIV who remain undiagnosed and linking them to health care;
2. Linking and retaining people diagnosed with HIV to health care and getting them on anti-HIV therapy to maximize HIV virus suppression so they remain healthy and prevent further transmission; and
3. Providing access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for high-risk people to keep them HIV negative.
Questions we will discuss: Will this work? Will other states follow New York’s lead? How will this affect you?
