La iniciativa CERO es posible

Zero is Possible – Indiana (ZIP-IN) is a statewide initiative bringing together the essential people, tools, and resources to end the VIH epidemia y eliminar Hepatitis C (VHC) en Indiana.


Over the course of three decades, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (VIH) has gone from being a mysterious terminal illness, to a medical challenge inspiring massive global mobilization, to its current reality as an understood and very manageable chronic health condition. Similarly, Hepatitis C (VHC) holds the title of “the fastest viral disease ever to be identified and cured,” with just 25 years between its discovery in 1989 and availability a 90% effective curative treatment in 2014.

Today, we are equipped with the knowledge and resources to end the VIH epidemia y eliminar VHC. Expert stakeholders from throughout the state have contributed their knowledge and passion to advancing this work, by collaborating on this statewide initiative to help make ending the VIH epidemic and eliminating VHC achievable goals for Indiana.  

Zero is Possible: Indiana’s Plan to End VIH and Hepatitis C (ZIP-IN Plan) represents a collaborative effort, informed by healthcare and community partners across the state, and is aligned with the national Ending the VIH Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) and the Viral Hepatitis National Strategic Plan for the United States: A Roadmap for Elimination, 2021-2025. The ZIP-IN Plan presents an approach to collectively address VIH and VHC, due to the shared high-risk populations, barriers to treatment, healthcare providers and community support networks, and opportunities to develop a comprehensive, whole-person approach to patient care, counseling, and treatment. The strategies within the ZIP-IN Plan were developed in consultation with a wide array of healthcare providers, community partners, and people with lived experience, who participated in listening sessions, focus groups, surveys, and technical workgroups over a research and planning period spanning more than a year.

In pursuit of this vision, the Hepatitis Plan has established five primary goals:

To measure success, Viral Hepatitis National Strategic Plan for the United States: A Roadmap to Elimination proposes the following indicators:

  • Reduce acute VHC infections by 20% by 2025 and 90% by 2030

  • Increase proportion of people who have cleared VHC infection to58% by 2025 and 80% by 2030
