On Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, capture a moment of your day and take your best shot against HIV stigma.

A Day with HIV is this Monday, September 23. The annual anti-stigma campaign of Positively Aware magazine captures 24 hours in the lives of people affected by HIV—and that’s everyone, regardless of age, race, gender identity, or even HIV status.

This Monday, take a picture and post it to your social media with the hashtag #adaywithhiv; include a caption that gives the time and location—and what inspired you to take the photo. Pictures can also be uploaded to adaywithhiv.com, where they will be considered for publication in a special section of the November+December issue of Positively Aware, TPAN’s HIV health and treatment magazine.

Your photo may be among those chosen to appear on the cover or in the pages of Positively Aware magazine (with your permission)—so be sure to share your image in high resolution! 

Share a snapshot of your story! No matter where you live or how you are affected by HIV (we all are), when you join this powerful campaign, you confront stigma and change people's minds. Click HERE to learn more and get ready for September 23rd!

“The real impact comes from the stories behind the images people share,” said Positively Aware art director Rick Guasco, who created A Day with HIV and has been living with HIV since 1992. “Posting your photo is an opportunity to tell your story and humanize life with HIV.”

Have you seen the proud stories and inspiring images from A Day with HIV? Read how Andrew Espinosa has participated in A Day with HIV nearly every year since the campaign began in 2010.

On Monday, Sept. 23, take your best shot against HIV stigma.

Help End The HIV and Hepatitis C Epidemics

image001

We need your help to end the HIV and hepatitis C epidemics and significantly reduce the incidence of STDs!

Since 2014, several cities, counties, and states have announced Ending the Epidemic plans to end the HIV and hepatitis C epidemics and address the growing epidemic of STDs. Unlike other plans drafted primarily by and for public health officials, these Ending the Epidemic plans were developed and implemented with leadership from all impacted communities. 

It is time for California to develop its own Ending the Epidemic plan! The California HIV/AIDS Policy Research Centers, together with viral hepatitis and STD organizations, have launched a community-driven effort to inform development of a statewide plan to end the HIV and hepatitis C epidemics and significantly reduce the incidence of STDs. What makes this initiative unique – in addition to community leadership – is its ambitious goal of addressing the epidemics of HIV, hepatitis C, and STDs at the same time.

We are seeking broad community input and recommendations on key Ending the Epidemic strategies, especially activities that would be considered game-changers. Game-changer activities may include new policies and programs, changes to existing policies and programs, or other efforts that would help dramatically reduce the incidence of HIV, hepatitis C, and STDs. These recommendations will help inform the development and implementation of a statewide Ending the Epidemic plan.

We want your input! Please complete the Ending the Epidemics community survey here. We highly encourage you to share this information with your networks.

Thanks in advance for your help! If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Clary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Laying a Foundation for Getting to Zero Baseline Report now available on the Office of AIDS website

We are pleased to announce that the California Department of Health (CDPH) Office of AIDS (OA) has released the “Laying a Foundation for Getting to Zero Baseline Report.” This report details the twelve objectives in the “Laying a Foundation for Getting to Zero: California’s Integrated HIV Surveillance, Prevention, and Care Plan” (the plan), and provides the annual incremental goals to reach the stated objectives by the end of 2021.  Data for the years 2014 and 2015 were used to set baseline measures, and 2016 data are also reported. For some of the objectives, data for local health jurisdictions are also available and will be released separately. The report also includes a summary of OA activities during 2016. The time-period covered by this report is prior to initiating the plan, which officially started in January 2017. However, many of the activities addressed were initiated prior to 2017 and can be used to inform future work.
