  • Welcome to The Chicago Center for HIV Elimination

    The Chicago Center for HIV Elimination (CCHE) at the University of Chicago is a resource for programs, news, and services directly related to the goal of eliminating new HIV transmission events. 

  • Mission Statement

    CCHE seeks to eliminate new HIV transmission events over the next 30 years (from 2011 to 2041) by using network science to target and integrate prevention as well as create structural and community-specific interventions. 

The Expanded HIV Testing Initiative

The Expanded HIV Testing and Linkage to Care Program (xTLC) institutes routine testing programs in disproportionately affected populations in Chicago. We collaborate with community-based organizations and hospitals to ensure that HIV testing and subsequent linkage to care becomes a standard and unstigmatized part of health care.
