Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed the Minnesota Plan to End AIDS on May 20, 2017 May 25th, 2017

This is a great moment to be a Minnesotan as we join a handful of other states leading the charge to tackle the epidemic in this comprehensive, compassionate, and measurable way. The Minnesota Plan to End AIDS directs Minnesota agencies to work with community stakeholders to develop strategies to eliminate new HIV infections, and to connect people living with HIV to health care. Specifically, the plan directs state agencies to:

  • Determine levels of testing, care, and services necessary to eliminate HIV/AIDS
  • Determine specific outcomes that must be met
  • Provide recommendations for how to leverage existing funds
  • Provide recommendations for new and enhanced interventions, and additional resources needed
  • The Plan to End AIDS passed unanimously due to the work of a broad coalition of people and organizations including -- but certainly not limited to -- The Aliveness Project, the Minnesota AIDS Project, Clare Housing, , Hope House, and Rainbow Health.
