Mayor's Message

“We are at a critical point in the global fight against HIV and AIDS. The Bay Area has been a hub of HIV/AIDS research, innovation and activism and, in Oakland, we’re fortunate that our local, state and federal representatives are aligned in believing that we must intensify our efforts to reach underserved communities who shoulder most of the burden of HIV. Together, through sustained commitment, partnership and action, we will achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation.”

Libby Schaaf
Mayor of Oakland

Community Leadership Messages

“We are really happy to be part of the global Fast Track Cities Initiative. Oakland is a community with a long history of responding to tough problems and making a way forward out of difficult circumstances. While we may be under-resourced in terms of dollars and HIV specific health and community support agencies, we have a spirit of community collaboration and a long history of working together to bring about lasting change. Nothing beats the Oakland activism legacy. We will achieve the UN 90-90-90 targets and reach the three zeros by 2030.”

Marsha Martin

"Oakland is one of the most diverse cities in the nation. In Oakland and the surrounding counties of Alameda and Contra Costa, we face serious disparities in access to education, prevention, and treatment services for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. In coordination with the Fast-Track Cities initiative, we are excited to launch East Bay Getting to Zero, a collaborative community mobilization effort to reduce new HIV infections, improve the lives of people most impacted by HIV, and eliminate HIV-related stigma and health disparities."
