The HIV Prevention Program
The HIV Prevention Program coordinates the Statewide HIV Prevention Planning Group, develops and implements the Georgia HIV Prevention Plan, coordinates the HIV testing program and data reporting for the state, and provides capacity building and training for community partners and public health staff. The HIV Prevention Program also provides funding to community based organizations and public health districts throughout the state.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the primary funding source for Georgia’s HIV Prevention Program. Through this funding opportunity, HIV Prevention has developed a Comprehensive HIV Program, which aims to reduce the spread of HIV among Georgians by identifying newly diagnosed HIV positive clients and those that have been previously diagnosed or identified as lost to care and link them to medical care and other supportive series (e.g., Partner Services, STD/TB screenings, mental health and substance abuse treatment/prevention).
