Comprehensive HIV Plan 2012-2015

The 2012-2015 Comprehensive HIV Plan serves as a statewide guide to responsive, effective, and efficient HIV service delivery in Iowa. Goals and strategies included in the strategic plan are designed to meet the specific needs of Iowans who are at high-risk for HIV infection, who are members of populations disproportionately impacted by HIV, and/or who are living with HIV/AIDS.

In accordance with direction from the Iowa Department of Public Health’s primary federal funding agencies for HIV-related programs, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), this comprehensive plan has been developed by Iowans to improve the effectiveness of the state’s HIV prevention and care programs by strengthening the scientific basis, relevance, and focus of prevention and care strategies.

It is also designed to align with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and to serve as Iowa’s statewide plan, as requested in the Strategy.
