Getting to Zero Illinois relaunches dashboard


Getting to Zero Illinois (GTZ-IL) announced the relaunch of the project’s GTZ-IL dashboard with updates last week. 

The update to the dashboard includes an increase in accessibility to data and information for priority populations, which historically has only been available via request from the health department.

In their announcement, GTZ-IL said the dashboard is a customizable data tool. It combines publicly available data from the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), allowing users to find specific graphs on topics such as PrEP coverage, awareness of HIV status, new HIV diagnoses, linkage to care and viral suppression.

The data in this dashboard is organized into three different sections: progress measures, health measures, and social determinants of health. The new interactive graphs will also display progress towards key GTZ-IL goals and strategies by 2023 and 2030, which are aligned with the national Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) goals. Finally, the new dashboard will now also include previously unavailable sexually transmitted infection (STI) data.

The dashboard was designed by Northwestern University in collaboration with AIDS Foundation Chicago (AFC), the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). Funding for the dashboard was provided by AIDS Foundation Chicago, made possible in part by a grant from the CDPH.

We are excited that our relaunch coincides with World AIDS Day (December 1st) and welcome you all to explore the new dashboard, explore its updated features and take the power of this information into your own hands as we all unite to help get to zero.
