On December 17, 2019, we were honored to receive an award from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors congratulating and commending “East Bay Getting to Zero for launching an important community-driven initiative and working toward a vision of zero new HIV transmissions in the East Bay through the promotion of equitable access to HIV testing, prevention and treatment services in Alameda County.”
Supervisors Keith Carson and Wilma Chan each gave talks on the history of HIV in Alameda County, including the HIV State of Emergency proclamation and Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s important advocacy for HIV services in the East Bay. They shared their firm commitment to EBGTZ’s vision and goals.
We hope that this high level of support inspires and motivates us to keep moving towards this vision of zero new HIV transmissions. We are grateful to everyone working hard in our East Bay communities to implementing more equitable, healing-centered and people-first HIV testing, prevention and treatment services.
