HIV/STD Strategy 2019-2022Release Date: 2019-05-06
In 2017, the Long Beach Comprehensive HIV Planning Group launched a comprehensive effort to develop a Long Beach HIV/STD strategy to significantly reduce the number of HIV and STD infections in the city.
The new strategies outlined in this report come at a time when new HIV infections continue, although science has made it possible to stop HIV infections through PrEP, PEP and other treatments. In addition, our city has experienced significant increases in STDs since 2013. It is essential that we focus additional resources and the expertise of our Health Department, community-based organizations, and medical providers to reduce the number of new cases in Long Beach.
