Fulton County HIV Task Force Hosts Listening Sessions Tonight, Tomorrow

The Fulton HIV/AIDS Task Force today announced two additional community listening sessions this week to gather more input from persons directly impacted by HIV/AIDS and from a broad range of stakeholders working in HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.  This week’s listening sessions seek more ideas on how to implement the Phase One objectives of the Task Force’s plan.  Phase Two of the plan is set to be released on June 27, 2016 in conjunction with National HIV Testing Day.

Last week, the Task Force released its initial report “Our Time is Now: The Strategy to End AIDS in Fulton County.”  The 50-page report includes more than 60 objectives in the areas of prevention and care; social determinants of health; health data and evaluation and healthcare policy, all in an effort to spur a more coordinated community response.
