Bending the Curve: Can New York End Its AIDS Epidemic?

Achieve, a quarterly journal on HIV Prevention, is the flagship publication of the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA). The front-page article in Volume 7, No. 1 proposes measures to support New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Department of Health’s commitment to end the AIDS epidemic in New York. The plan draws on the conclusions of a 2013 coalition of community groups that reviews over 30 years of progress and challenges within the AIDS movement. The report proposes five key elements of a strategy to end the epidemic: modern surveillance strategies, evidence-based prevention, viral suppression, care retention support, and political commitment.

A subsequent article entitled “Wraparound Care: A Necessity, Not a Luxury” explores the demand for and benefits of wrap-around services that supplement medical HIV and AIDS treatment, including counseling, outreach, cost-sharing, transportation and housing.

Rabin Martin Senior Vice President Terri Jackson authored “Wrap-Around Care” and co-authored “Bending the Curve” with Dr. Donna Futterman, MD.
