On World AIDS Day, City of West Hollywood Releases ‘Getting to Zero’
In recognition of World AIDS Day 2017, the City of West Hollywood has produced and released a short video called Getting to Zero. It features an emotionally captivating interview with Jeffrey Rodriguez, Program Manager of the Los Angeles LGBT Center WeHo’s Sexual Health Education Program, and highlights the City’s support for local HIV/AIDS organizations and its vision to build an “HIV Zero” future.
Getting to Zero is available on the City’s WeHoTV YouTube Channel. It will be screened on Friday, December 1, 2017 at the annual Paul Starke Warrior Awards, following the World AIDS Day Candlelight Vigil.
HIV and AIDS have had a disproportionate impact in the City of West Hollywood. During its history, the City has provided millions of dollars in grants to fund vital social services programs, including services for people with HIV and AIDS. The City’s HIV Zero Strategic Plan spells out a plan to “get to zero” on many fronts: zero new infections; zero progression of HIV to AIDS; zero discrimination; and zero stigma.
