FIGHTING TO STOP HIV IN MINNESOTA.


STRATEGIC PLAN 2013 – 2016

To reach our collective vision, MAP began its strategic planning process with bold questions derived from national and local research about the changing landscape within the HIV sector. From the knowledge gained, MAP began the next phase of the strategic process by testing assumptions about the future with input from stakeholders. MAP conducted focus groups with consumers (both positive and at risk) and staff as well as interviews with national, regional and local leaders within the healthcare and HIV sector.

STRATEGIC GOALS MAP’s 2013–16 Strategic Plan will advance the following five Strategic Goals and activities that support our collective vision to create a Minnesota where new HIV infections are eliminated and individuals with HIV live long, healthy lives. During the three year period covered by this plan, organizational and programmatic growth will be guided by the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy in concert with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Increase access to health care, treatment, and prevention education for individuals living with, at risk for, and affected by HIV. Improve health outcomes for people living with and at risk for HIV. Decrease HIV-related health disparities. Reduce stigma and discrimination associated with HIV. Strengthen MAP’s business processes in order to ensure longterm sustainability.

The HIV care continuum is a way to show, in visual form, the proportion of individuals living with HIV/AIDS who are engaged at each stage of HIV care. According to the latest CDC data, only 25% of people living with HIV in the U.S. have achieved viral suppression. In other words, three out of four people living with HIV in the United States have not been successfully supported in navigating the entire HIV care continuum.
