The plan includes identifying all persons with HIV who remain undiagnosed and linking them to health care; linking and retaining persons diagnosed with HIV in health care and getting them on anti-retroviral therapy to maximize HIV viral suppression, so they remain healthy and prevent further transmission; and providing access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to persons who engage in high-risk behaviors to keep them HIV negative.
