New York City Council will devote $6.6 million to three types of HIV interventions as part of the state’s Plan to End AIDS, reports Gay City News.

Specifically, the council money will go to programs that support what’s known as treatment as prevention (TasP), which is when HIV-positive people remain connected to care and on meds to the point where their viral load is undetectable, making them less likely to pass on the virus as well as more likely to live longer, healthier lives.

City Council funding will also support PrEP and PEP, or pre-exposure prophylaxis and post-exposure prophylaxis, which is when HIV-negative people take a regimen of HIV meds to prevent contracting the virus.

The Plan to End AIDS aims to lower new infections across New York state from 3,000 a year to 750 a year by 2020.

HIV programs that will receive funding include the LGBT Center, ACRIA, Housing Works, GMHC, Harlem United, BOOM!Health and others.
