The Hawaiʻi 2 Zero (H20) Cure Initiative proposes to transform Hawaiʻi into the first HIV-free state in the United States. The timing of the Hawaiʻi to Zero Cure Initiative comes on the heels of scientific evidence that a patient from Berlin was cured of HIV in 2007. This bold initiative seeks to conduct HIV cure and prevention research directed towards “Hawaiʻi to Zero.” We believe Hawaiʻi has the scientific and community infrastructure to achieve this goal.
