Community Leadership Messages
“Despite medical advances to prevent and treat HIV, we still have too many patients whose lives are cut short by this disease due to stigma and misinformation. By participating in Fast Track Cities, our community leaders are taking an important step toward reducing the stigma and improving access to care for thousands of individuals in our city. CentroMed is honored to be part of this initiative and we look forward to the day when HIV is eradicated worldwide.”
"Individuals who live with HIV/AIDS continuously face stigma and daily obstacles. With Fast Track Cities, our population can now know that they are not struggling alone, and that the goal of their community is to help them experience health equity with a possibility of an HIV/AIDS free community. The community can provide the pathway for healing and acceptance for individuals who are HIV/AIDS positive. When we approach this goal as a community, we can make all things possible and provide hope to individuals who living with HIV/AIDS!"
