In July 2016, a small group of people living with HIV, advocates, service providers, and government officials met to explore a plan to dramatically impact the course of the HIV epidemic in Illinois. Participants agreed that it was critical to explore a Getting to Zero (GTZ) plan for Illinois. To kick off the process, the group set up teams to gather community input, engage key stakeholders, and develop a framework for the plan. The result of this year-long project is the Getting to Zero Framework. Now that the framework is in place, the focus is now to conduct a broad-based community effort to gather input to inform the GTZ Action Plan. Join our webinar to be a part of this effort.
