The Department of Health and Human Services yesterday launched “I am a Work of ART,” a national campaign to encourage people with HIV to seek or continue care and antiretroviral therapy, part of the national strategy to end the HIV epidemic by 2030. 

“When taken as prescribed, ART allows people with HIV to protect their health as well as the health of others,” said Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, M.D.

The Health Resources and Services Administration also awarded $115 million in grants to help states and other jurisdictions link people with HIV to care and treatment.
