GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER IS ANNOUNCING A PLAN TO END THE H-I-V EPIDEMIC IN ILLINOIS BY 2030.

 

THE “GETTING TO ZERO” INITIATIVE ATTACKS THE PROBLEM FROM SEVERAL ANGLES…ESPECIALLY PREVENTION. THAT INCLUDES INCREASING ACCESS TO “PREP” MEDICATION FOR THOSE VULNERABLE TO H-I-V, ESPECIALLY IN LOW INCOME COMMUNITIES SAYS PUBLIC HEALTH DIRECTOR DOCTOR NGOZI (en-gozi) EZIKE (eh-zee-kay).

 

 

THE PLAN IS THE RESULT OF TWO YEARS OF WORK WITH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PARTNERS.

 

 

 IT ALSO AIMS TO BOOST AWARENESS ABOUT HOW H-I-V IS TRANSMITTED AND TREAT THOSE ALREADY INFECTED.
