It's a Strategy! (Well, a draft at least...)

September 21, 2011

On September 13, 2011, the (IDPH) released a draft Illinois HIV/AIDS Strategy at the state HIV/AIDS conference in Springfield.  The release capped nearly a year of work led by Dr. Mildred Williamson, Chief of the IDPH HIV Section, and a dedicated group of community leaders who met for months to outline the plan.

The draft Illinois Strategy is a companion to the , which President Obama released in July 2010.  The national strategy is a focused, concrete, measurable plan to reduce new HIV cases, link people with HIV to health care, and reduce health disparities. 

Now it's time for YOU to weigh in.  IDPH is asking for YOUR comments on the strategy they’ve laid out.  What's clear? What's not?  What's missing?  What do you like?  What should there be more of?  What's left out? 

For example, if you think a section needs to be added on an issue, provide draft language. 

Comments should be sent via e-mail to by Monday, October 31, 2011.
