HIV

The JSI approach to combating HIV is to work with individuals, communities, and organizations to support “getting to zero”: No new infections, no deaths, and no stigma. With nearly three decades of work in HIV, both in the United States and internationally, JSI and our partners work together to reduce new infections, increase access to treatment and care services, and address stigma and discrimination,

JSI staff are committed to reducing the spread and impact of HIV and have the expertise to improve systems and impact of HIV and have the expertise to improve systems and services toward those goals. Our support is context-specific and responsive to locally-identified needs. Interventions are always based on proven best practices and are integrated into existing clinical social support program activities. Our integrated approach, linking HIV prevention, treatment, and support with broader health and social support to target those at greatest risk for acquiring HIV, those living with the virus, and those affected by its consequences.
 
The time to act is now. There are new approaches and information which could effectively diminish the impact of HIV in the United States and around the world. JSI remains committed to meeting that challenge by working with those at greatest risk and impacted most profoundly, to take advantage of these opportunities.
