The Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America is an initiative developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), that aims to reduce new HIV infections in the U.S. by working in local areas where HIV transmission occurs most frequently.
The overall goal of the U.S. is to achieve a 75% reduction in the rate of new HIV infections by 2025 and at least a 90% reduction by 2030.
To End the HIV Epidemic, areas affected by HIV should implement strategies to:
1. Diagnose all people with HIV as early as possible after infection
2. Treat the infection rapidly and effectively to reach viral suppression
3. Prevent new HIV transmissions through multiple interventions
4. Respond quickly to potential HIV outbreaks through prevention and treatment services
