Getting to Zero
For more than 25 years AIDS United has been at the forefront of addressing the HIV epidemic through our grantmaking, public policy, technical assistance,
and capacity building initiatives. AU has a long history of promoting collaborative local planning and providing strategic grants and technical support to
more than 250 community-based organizations (CBOs) across the US.
Our experience has shown that in order to advance HIV prevention efforts, it is essential to provide comprehensive support and culturally competent
technical assistance to CBOs that are working hard to identify and engage high‐risk HIV negative individuals in prevention services and link HIV positive
people to high quality care.
Getting to Zero (G2Zero), is AIDS United’s new capacity building initiative that specializes in helping CBOs implement creative, cost-effective, and
time-proven approaches that reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV. We do this by providing no-cost training
and technical assistance on High Impact Prevention and Public Health Strategies, such as the CDC’s Effective Behavioral Interventions
and time-tested organizational development tools.

Getting to Zero is a network of experts in HIV prevention, treatment, and care, and organizational development for CBOs. We have on the ground experience working directly with or training people who work with high risk groups. Our network includes, but is not limited to, leading organizations in the field such as:
- The Bridging Group
- Harm Reduction Coalition
- Health Equity Institute, San Francisco State University
The combined expertise and experience of each partner has resulted in numerous tested tools and strategies that can help you help your organization see the end of HIV in your community.
Given the shifting landscape of HIV prevention, care, and treatment in the US, CBOs have more demands than ever to decrease the number of individuals who become infected with HIV each year and improve the health outcomes of PLWH/A. CBOs must demonstrate their ability to provide high quality, culturally appropriate, and cost-effective services. G2Zero’s network of CBA providers can partner with you to combine your program expertise with our knowledge of evidence-based, state-of-the-science interventions to help you achieve your High Impact Prevention goals.
