GETTING TO ZERO CT

The Connecticut Getting to Zero (G2Z) initiative was created to respond to the alarming trends in the HIV epidemic, with emphasis on the growing incidence of HIV in MSM (men having sex with men) of color, Black women, and transgender women in urban centers where the epidemic is most concentrated; Hartford, Waterbury, Bridgeport, New Haven, and Stamford.

Getting to Zero's goal is for all people living with HIV (PLWH) to be:

  •  diagnosed
  • receive medical care
  • achieve viral suppression through HIV medication*

*PLWH who are virally suppressed remain healthy longer and are unlikely to spread the virus. Public health researchers estimate that at least 90% of all PLWH need to be virally suppressed to eliminate the HIV epidemic.

 

 

 

The Connecticut HIV Planning Consortium (CHPC)

The CHPC is a diverse group of stakeholders – including people living with HIV (PLWH), service providers, health specialists, and a range of community members – with a shared goal of creating a coordinated statewide prevention and care system.

The CHPC meets on the third Wednesday of the month January-August in Hartford. CHPC meetings are open to the public.
