AIDS Free Pittsburgh’s Five-Year Impact Published in Academic Journal

An overview of the AIDS Free Pittsburgh (AFP) program looking at the first five years of the program was accepted for publication in the journal, Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

"Getting to Zero in Allegheny County: Implementation of a Collective Impact Model to Achieve Ending the HIV Epidemic Objectives," provides a detailed description of the community-level project, the activities conducted by the collective, a summary of project outcomes, and lessons learned for replicating the project in other mid-sized, mid-HIV incidence jurisdictions.

Allegheny County has the second highest HIV prevalence in Pennsylvania.

AIDS Free Pittsburgh was established in 2015 with the goals of reducing new HIV infections by 75% and declaring Allegheny County AIDS-free, with no new AIDS cases by 2020, by using a collective impact framework in which partners pledge to collect and share data uniformly across health systems, co-organize events for provider and community education, and enhance access to quality healthcare by developing resources and referral networks.
