Healthix and the AIDS Institute: Ending the Epidemic
The HIV infection continues to exact a huge toll on individuals in the U.S., with New York State among the leaders nationwide in reported HIV/AIDS cases. Since the mid-90s, antiretroviral treatment has led to dramatic changes in health outcomes for people living with HIV. Now, Healthix is providing real-time data to support detection and long term care in the continued fight to end the epidemic. Watch this video for more information.

Ending the Epidemic in New York State
SelectHealth, a specialized Medicaid plan from VNSNY CHOICE supports Ending the Epidemic (ETE), a three-point plan to move New York State closer to the end of the AIDS epidemic. The plan:  

  1. Identifies people with HIV who remain undiagnosed and links them to health care.
  2. Links people diagnosed with HIV to health care and retains them to maximize virus suppression, so they can remain healthy and avoid further transmission.
  3. Facilitates access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for high-risk people, to help them remain HIV negative.

Additional information and the full Ending the Epidemic Blueprint can be found here
