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┬áNew York State Department of Health’s┬ácommitment 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.
