The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated several resources to support clinical practice across the HIV continuum.
- Check out the CDC Let’s Stop HIV Together campaign! The Together team provides free materials and resources to help health care providers promote HIV testing and HIV prevention, and assist their patients in achieving viral suppression. The campaign also offers resources on PrEP and PEP to help those who, either through sex or injection drug use, are at higher risk of HIV. Finally, it includes materials to help stop HIV stigma, highlight the role each person plays in reducing stigma and giving voice to those living with HIV.
- Visit CDC HIV Nexus, a one-stop location for information across the Ending the HIV Epidemic pillars of HIV including screening, prevention and treatment, with up-to-date tools and guidelines, and new educational materials for your patients and you.
Resources focus on:
- HIV Screening – Testing can reduce HIV transmission and early diagnosis can improve medical outcomes.
- HIV Prevention – Access risk-reduction tools and resources, including information about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).
- HIV Treatment & Care – Routine care and treatment are the best ways to keep people with HIV healthy.
- Patient-Centered HIV Care – This website contains information and materials for health care providers, whole-care teams, social service providers, and transgender people with the goal of reducing new HIV infections and improving the health of transgender people.

Thank you for all you do and let’s continue working to diagnose, prevent and treat HIV, Together!
