The Office of Community Advocacy invites you to help end the HIV epidemic Stephen P. Clark Center Lobby from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.


MIAMI – The Office of Community Advocacy joins the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County as they seek community involvement on the initiative “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America”. Help by taking a survey from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., on Nov. 6, at the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW 1st. Street, Miami.

“There were 28,345 Miami-Dade County residents living with HIV in 2018,” said Office of Community Advocacy Director Rene Diaz. “Unfortunately, 130 persons died of HIV – related causes in 2018.”

The survey will provide communities, especially those that have been heavily impacted by HIV with an opportunity to share their input on how Miami-Dade County can enhance HIV prevention and care efforts. Emphasis will be made on innovative strategies that can help achieve “Ending the HIV Epidemic” goals. Recommendations from the survey will assist the Florida Department of Health in the creation of a local plan.
