World AIDS Day 2015
HIV Alliance & Lane County Public Health Department Call for Continued Action to Prevent HIV
Eugene, OR—This World AIDS Day (December 1, 2015), HIV Alliance and Lane County Public Health Department are urging the community to remain vigilant in its conviction and dedication to end HIV/AIDS. Agency officials state that while we have reduced new infections, future HIV prevention requires constant attention in order to “Get to Zero.”
“While we have made great strides in reducing the number of new HIV infections, there is still no cure for HIV,” stated Dr. Patrick Luedtke. “HIV is a very persistent and vigorous virus and despite all the new medications, we have not been able to defeat it entirely. So we must stay vigilant; HIV prevention is a long term game.”

Vaccine was offered to incoming students at the campus orientations throughout the summer and continues to be widely available in local pharmacies and in all of Oregon. University of Oregon, Lane County, and Oregon Health Authority are working together to prevent further infections.
People who had close contact with a person diagnosed with type B meningococcal disease related to this outbreak should contact Lane County Health Department at (541) 682-4041. A nurse will help decide if antibiotics are needed to prevent illness.

Springfield: Tests Negative for Neisseria Meningitidis
Earlier today, tests indicated that a case associated with Springfield Public Schools does not have Neisseria meningitidis. This “rule out” is part of the standard practice of Lane County Public Health and is a regular function of the County working with patients and medical providers to keep the community safe from communicable diseases.
At this time, Lane County Public Health is not concerned about elevated risk for students in the Springfield School District. Our team’s concern, first and foremost, is the health and safety of our community.
