East Bay Getting to Zero

East Bay HIV data, epidemiology and disparities can be found on these websites:

Over the past 10 years, the East Bay linkage and retention working group has developed a warm hand-off process, single points of contact for linkages, and rapid, same-day access to HIV medications (antiretroviral treatment, or ART) and to PrEP. As a result, we improved our 90-day linkage rates from 2012 to 2017:

  • 70% to 79% in Alameda County
  • 82% to 92% in Contra Costa County

During that same time, we improved our county-wide viral load suppression rates, which is a marker for how well people living with HIV are doing on treatment and achieving U=U (Undetectable = Untransmittable):

  • 40% to 72% in Alameda County
  • 65% to 75% in Contra Costa County

Starting in 2018, we started tracking 30-day linkages rather than 90-day linkages as well as rates of same-day access to HIV treatment (75% among HIV ACCESS clinics in 2020).
