Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S.

Today we have the Right Data, Right Tools, and Right Leadership to end the HIV epidemic.

Background

The federal Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative focuses on reducing the number of new HIV infections in the United States by at least 90% by 2030, which would be fewer than 3,000 per year.

In February 2020: HHS awarded $117 Million to End the HIV Epidemic in the U.S., which included:

  • Nearly $54 million to 195 health centers with service delivery sites in geographic locations identified by the EHE initiative
  • Approximately $63 million to 60 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients to link people with HIV who are either newly diagnosed, or are diagnosed but currently not in care, to essential HIV care and treatment and support services, as well as to provide workforce training and technical assistance

In March 2021: HRSA awarded $99 Million to End the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program to expand access to HIV care, treatment, medication and essential support services.

In September 2021: HRSA awarded over $48 million to 271 HRSA-funded health centers with service delivery sites in geographic locations identified by the EHE initiative. A subset of the 195 original awardees received funding to expand ongoing participation in EHE activities; this subset totaled 163 centers.
