CDC Releases Communication Suite for HIV Prevention & Care

Sep 04, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just released a suite of communication tools and resources that support its ongoing efforts to prevent HIV and help people with HIV stay healthy. The new and revised tools also support the work of the proposed HHS initiative, Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.

CDC’s role in the initiative includes working closely with other HHS agencies, local and state governments, communities, and people living with HIV to coordinate efforts to expand key HIV strategies. While communities will develop plans based on their own needs, they will focus on four key strategies: Diagnose, Treat, Prevent, and Respond. This suite of resources can assist communities in each of these four key areas and includes:

  • A new website for the Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign. CDC’s 10-year campaign, Act Against AIDS, has undergone a name change to Let’s Stop HIV Together. Those familiar with Act Against AIDS may recognize Let’s Stop HIV Together as the name of the anti-stigma efforts under that campaign. The campaign consists of resources and partnerships aimed at stopping HIV stigma and promoting HIV testing, prevention, and treatment. Let’s Stop HIV Together empowers communities, partners on the ground, and health care providers to reduce stigma among all Americans, prevent HIV among the hardest-hit populations, and help people with HIV stay healthy.
  • A new HIV Nexus website that provides clinicians with a credible source of information to help them stay abreast of the latest HIV recommendations and research, diagnose and treat patients as early as possible, and prevent new HIV transmissions. HIV Nexus will also support clinicians in communicating with patients and caregivers about HIV prevention, screening, and treatment.
  • A combined HIV prevention services locator widget. The new widget combines four key HIV prevention services (HIV testing, PrEP, PEP, and condoms) in one locator. Through the locator widget, users can find HIV prevention services near them with a simple zip code search.
  • A new CDC HIV home page that guides visitors to unique content for consumers, clinicians, and public health partners. You will find the familiar CDC HIV prevention information, tools and resources under the Public Health Partners section.

The resources released today will equip communities, health care providers, and partners with the tools, information, and resources needed to support their vital work.
