Meeting to address how to eliminate HIV

WAUKEGAN – The Lake County Health Department and Getting to Zero Project partners invite residents to share their thoughts, ideas and hopes for getting to zero new HIV infections in Illinois at the Getting to Zero Illinois HIV Town Hall.

The event will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Jan. 23 at the Waukegan Public Library, 128 N. County St., Waukegan, according to a news release. Refreshments will be provided. Transportation assistance and child care are available upon request.

In July 2016, the Lake County Health Department joined together with people living with HIV, advocates, service providers and government officials to explore a plan to dramatically impact the course of the HIV epidemic in Illinois. Over the course of a year, the group developed the Getting to Zero Framework to guide Illinois toward having zero new HIV infections and zero people living with HIV who are not receiving treatment.

For information on the Waukegan Getting to Zero town hall, contact Valerie Johansen at [ mailto:vjohansen@lakecountyil.gov ]vjohansen@lakecountyil.gov.For a list of additional town hall dates and locations across the state, visit www.aidschicago.org/gtz.
