Getting to Zero (G2Zero), an AIDS United Capacity Building Initiative

To advance HIV prevention efforts, it is important to provide comprehensive support and culturally competent technical assistance (TA) to Community Based Organizations (CBOs) that are committed to engaging high risk HIV negative persons in prevention services and linking HIV positive persons to care.

Getting to Zero (G2Zero) is an AIDS United Capacity Building Initiative and part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) Provider Network. G2Zero will support CBOs in implementing creative, cost-effective, and time-proven approaches that reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV. The Health Equity Institute will provide technical assistance (TA) to the G2Zero Initiative, along with other leading organizations in the field.

The Health Equity Institute brings expert knowledge and skills to G2Zero and has successfully led similar initiatives in the past, including the Generations III National Technical Assistance Program.
