Event Details

2018 Ending the Epidemic Summit 

The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute (NYSDOH AI) is hosting the third annual Ending the Epidemic Summit on December 4-5, 2018 at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center and accompanying meeting rooms. The 2018 Ending the Epidemic Summit is intended to bring key stakeholders to one forum to share Ending the Epidemic implementation efforts focusing on the theme of Making it Happen, Getting it Done! Addressing health inequities has always been a priority in the Ending the Epidemic efforts which will be highlighted during this feature event.   

Background

On June 29, 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo detailed a three-point plan to move us closer to the end of the AIDS epidemic in New York State. The goal is to reduce the number of new HIV infections to an estimated 750 annually by the end of 2020 and achieve the first ever decrease in HIV prevalence in New York State.

 

The three-point plan:

1. Identifies persons with HIV who remain undiagnosed and links them to health care.

2. Links and retains persons diagnosed with HIV in health care to maximize virus suppression to improve health and prevent further transmission.

3. Facilitates access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for persons who engage in high-risk behaviors to keep them HIV negative.

Ending the Epidemic efforts in New York State will maximize the availability of life-saving, transmission-interrupting treatment for HIV, saving lives and improving the health of New Yorkers. In October 2014, a Task Force to develop a Blueprint was brought together to operationalize the three-point plan.  The Blueprint was presented to the Governor on April 29, 2015.

 

Please register by 5pm on Thursday, November 29, 2018.
