Note from Miguel Gomez, AIDS.gov Director: This week we are pleased to share a post from one of our many partners -- The Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria (GBC), on an initiative to bring HIV testing information to millions for World AIDS Day and beyond. Read on to find out what John Newsome, Vice-President of the U.S. HIV/AIDS Initiative with the GBC had to say about this World AIDS Day initiative:
AIDS.gov has developed the most advanced tool yet for people to search for HIV testing locations near their ZIP codes -- including a dynamic map and links to other health services. Combining data from CDC, HUD, SAMHSA, and HRSA, competencies from throughout the government and the power of the internet, the new locator is a potential game-changer.
And starting next week, the locator will be available for up-to 100 million Americans -- without spending a dime.
Talk about bang for your buck!
The key to that kind of cost-effectiveness is an innovative partnership model -- one that matches the remarkable tools and know-how of the public health community with the assets and reach of the private sector.
John Newsome is the Vice President of The Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria.
