If you attended RED Brunch you heard all about the City of Phoenix's new status as a UNAIDS Fast Track City. This City resolution, championed by Mayor Greg Stanton, establishes benchmarks for HIV prevention, testing, treatment, and stigma elimination. Aunt Rita's Foundation is a proud partner in the broad community collaborative formed to help achieve the goals of this initiative.
90 PERCENT of persons living with HIV will know their status. Currently about 15% of HIV positive persons are unaware of their status.
90 PERCENT of persons diagnosed with HIV will be in treatment and taking HIV medications. Currently only half of HIV positive Arizonans are taking HIV medications.
90 PERCENT of persons taking HIV medications will have achieved viral suppression and their virus will be undetectable. Those with an undetectable virus are no longer infectious to others!
0 PERCENT of people will have any stigma about HIV, and 0 PERCENT will exhibit any discrimination toward people with HIV
