AIDS Task Force recognizes 30 years of Service and Transitions into Northeast Indiana Positive Resource Connection

As part of their strategic re-branding and public awareness plan, the AIDS Task Force explored the idea and appropriateness of a name change in 2015.  The year 2015 represented 30 years of operations for the agency and the Board of Directors and the Executive Director, with input from staff, clients, and community leaders, felt it was time to change the AIDS Task Force's name.

After a year of meetings, focus group input, and interviews the agency selected “Positive Resource Connection” as the new name. Positive Resource Connection positions the agency in remaining relevant to HIV issues, accurately reflect the work that is being done in the community, and it reduces barriers to client comfort and service accessibility. This change allows the Positive Resource Connection to continue the work of eliminating new cases of AIDS in those living with HIV; reduces the transmission viability of HIV; and eliminates new HIV infections from occurring in those who are HIV negative.

Today if individuals are aware of their HIV positive status, are linked into medical care and prescribed HIV medication; and adheres to their medical plan, they will have nearly the same life expectancy as someone who is HIV negative and they will decrease the chances of passing HIV to others which will significantly reduce HIV infection in the community. The first step is getting in knowing your HIV status.  For more information on HIV testing, educational programs, or care to those living with HIV, click on the above tabs.
