Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Planning (ECHPP) ProjectThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently launched a new web page providing details about the Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Planning (ECHPP) Project, which is a cornerstone of the larger HHS-wide 12 Cities Project.

The new page provides information on the three-year demonstration project funded by CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) for the 12 municipalities with the highest number of people living with AIDS in the United States. Executive summaries of the plans developed by each of the jurisdictions are also posted so you can read more about the methods the jurisdictions used in their planning and the interventions and audiences they prioritized as well as the methods proposed to better integrate HIV prevention, care and treatment. These examples may be helpful as you work within your organization or community to examine current HIV prevention activities and determine whether reprioritizing resources, interventions, audiences, or collaborations might yield better results.
