Our mission is to advance health equity and promote healing for all people impacted by HIV.
Our vision is an East Bay with zero HIV stigma, health disparities, or new HIV transmissions.
3 Easy Ways To Help Us Get To Zero!
1. Get tested for HIV
Did you know everyone is supposed to get tested for HIV regardless of risk? We support everyone to get tested for HIV as part of routine health care because knowing your status helps you and your provider take care of your health better.
2. Learn & talk about PrEP
Did you know that there is a pill called PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) for people without HIV to prevent getting HIV? We support everyone who wants or needs HIV PrEP to get rapid, easy access to it.
3. Talk about HIV treatment and U=U
Did you know that when a person living with HIV is on treatment and has an undetectable viral load, they won't transmit HIV? That's why we say U=U, or Undetectable = Untransmittable. We support everyone living with HIV to get rapid, easy, friendly care and treatment.
Thank you for making our launch at Oakland Pride a success!
At Oakland Pride on Sunday, September 9, 2019, we had around 400 community members come to spin our question/prize wheel, take Getting-to-Zero selfies, or chat about HIV prevention and treatment. We hope you see people wearing their EBGTZ buttons and carrying their gear around. Check out the photos from Pride. Many thanks to all our volunteers and supporters!
