Fighting to End an Epidemic Amidst a Global Pandemic
Another year in the books, and what a year it’s been! In addition to navigating year two of the pandemic, we’ve had to manage a statewide cut from the Indiana Department of Health, resulting in a $75,000 loss for our agency. As a result, a part-time case manager’s position was lost, and our client food pantry is now relying solely on private donations and supplemental reserves from our own budget.
The good news is we’ve been reinforcing our prevention efforts to move us closer to a new generation free of HIV, AIDS and Hepatitis C. Following the Indiana State Plan consisting of four pillars – Diagnose, Treat, Prevent and Respond – 94% of our clients have reached an undetectable viral load. Maintaining their undetectable viral load means their HIV will never progress to AIDS and they are unable to transmit the virus to anyone else. This is HUGE, not only for each individual client, but for our community as a whole.
Indiana State Plan
Moving into 2021, we are reinforcing our prevention efforts to move us closer to a new generation free of HIV, AIDS and Hepatitis C. With this in mind, we have adopted the Indiana State Plan consisting of a four-pillars approach to reach our goal:
