Workgroups to combat AIDS start this month

Tuesday, August 7, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt signed the Paris Declaration to end the AIDS epidemic in June, launching the “Fast-Track Cities Initiative” in the process. Now that initiative is moving forward, in an effort to ensure that in Travis County, by 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status, receive sustained treatment and have an undetectable viral load. The initiative also holds goals to end stigma and establish a 50 percent reduction in new infections. To that end, this month workgroups will be established to begin work on the goals. All meetings will be held at the Rosewood-Zaragosa Neighborhood Center Gym, and information on those meetings and how to sign up is available online here.
