East Bay Getting to Zero working groups bring together peers, frontline workers, program leadership and community members to learn together and collaboratively problem-solve HIV-related challenges and make local policy and program recommendations to build the capacity for people-centered, high-quality, culturally appropriate HIV service delivery throughout the East Bay.
The prevention working group focuses on biomedical interventions including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), and treatment-as-prevention (TasP).
The linkage and retention working group identifies and addresses barriers to care and disparities in HIV outcomes.
The testing working group is currently a subgroup of the steering committee and focuses on integrating universal HIV testing into community health clinics, federally-qualified health centers, other primary care clinics, urgent care and drop-in health centers, emergency departments, hospitals and jails.
The role of Community Steering Committee is to provide guidance and subject matter expertise for all operational components of the initiative.
East Bay HIV strategic activities are led by East Bay Getting to Zero working groups, whose members design, implement and evaluate activities with many community collaborators. The community messaging working group aims to develop East Bay-specific campaigns that includes multigenerational, multicultural and multilingual messaging that inspires hope and reaches all our communities.
The East Bay Getting to Zero Youth Engagement Working Group (formerly the Youth Catalyst Team) is a youth-focused program which honors youth as the experts of their lived experiences as well as key agents in the process toward creating sustainable changes in healthcare services for all youth and young adults.
Queremos compartir las iniciativas en las que estamos trabajando para nuestra comunidad hispanohablante y a la vez queremos que seas parte de ellas.
The intentions of the Poz+ group are to build community among people living with HIV in the East Bay, to get to know one another and learn more about each other, to share best strategies for living well with HIV, to discuss the current information around HIV and COVID, and discuss how to disseminate the information and implement strategic priorities.
