Ending the Epidemic

Since its founding in 1993, PCDC has supported providers to expand access to care to reduce the prevalence of HIV and AIDS.

We help providers advance programs to End the HIV Epidemic

The United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories have made significant progress in reducing the prevalence of HIV and AIDS and improving individuals’ ability to lead healthy lives. Through the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state-based initiatives, and philanthropic funding, PCDC’s expert address a central theme — “Ending the HIV Epidemic” — emphasizing those at risk or disengaged from treatment. Underlying these programs is recognition of the disease’s disproportionate impact on low-income communities of color.

PCDC’s High Impact Prevention (HIP) in Health Care program provides free capacity building and technical assistance – with the support of the CDC – to eligible clinical health care settings. The goal of the program is to expand and improve the delivery of HIV prevention services using the core components of the CDC’s HIP strategy.

Health Equity Toolbox

Advancing health equity is a cornerstone of PCDC’s work and the health centers, health departments, providers, and community agencies we collaborate with. To support the shared mission, the following tools have been made available to increase organizations’ capacity to address health disparities in vulnerable communities such as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and/or LGBTQIA+ populations.
