HIV Care Continuum

“The United States will become a place where new HIV infections are rare, and when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socio-economic circumstance, will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.”United States National HIV/AIDS Strategy

To realize this vision, health care organizations are an important component of HIV prevention and treatment. They should be prepared and equipped to provide scientifically accurate and culturally responsive information and services to patients with both positive and negative HIV test results.

PCDC has developed this interactive, clickable HIV Care Continuum to assist organizations with their HIV prevention and treatment strategies. Each step in the continuum contains information and links to resources such as webinars, briefs, success stories, and more.
