It's here! Read the Stop HIV Iowa Plan
We are so proud to unveil the Stop HIV Iowa Plan! This plan represents the work and ideas of more than 3,000 Iowans on how to stop transmission of HIV in Iowa and how to ensure the best health outcomes for the 3,430 Iowans estimated to be living with HIV in the state.
We can stop HIV, Iowa—and this is how.
The Stop HIV Iowa Plan represents Iowa’s part in the national effort to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030, supporting the 2022-2026 National HIV/AIDS Strategy.
In 2020, Iowa led the nation in the proportion of people diagnosed with HIV who had achieved viral suppression, with 80% achieving that goal. In 2021, this had increased to 82%. People who have suppressed the amount of HIV in their bodies to undetectable levels do not transmit HIV to their partners. They also achieve their best health outcomes.
Our vision is to make Iowa a place where everyone knows their HIV status, and where everyone living with HIV is valued and respected, has high-quality care and treatment, and lives free from stigma and discrimination.
The Stop HIV Iowa Plan is meant to be a living document, and feedback is welcomed. The full plan is available on the Stop HIV Iowa Planning website, along with options to submit feedback. Let us know where we are succeeding and where we can improve!
