Purpose of this plan
In 2007, the Department of Health’s HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, STD and TB Administration (HAHSTA) developed the first DC Youth and HIV Prevention Initiative Plan in an effort to define and coordinate needed resources to address the HIV epidemic in the District of Columbia. The Office of the Inspector General found that overall, the plan was successfully implemented. The subsequent plan, which continued this work and ended in 2015, resulted in a number of collaborations, initiatives, and programs that facilitated the expansion of HIV and STD education and services for youth in Washington, DC.
