A new article published in AIDS and Behavior highlights the impact of COVID-19 on community-based organizations (CBOs) and the HIV continuum of care. Many community health organizations (CHOs) are closed, healthcare providers have reduced hours, and medical professionals are shifting from primary care to focus on COVID-19. This article assesses the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the HIV Continuum of Care and Prevention—that is, testing, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and primary care—and proposes a course of action so that we may end the HIV epidemic in this decade.
