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 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative aims to reduce the number of new HIV infections in the United States by at least 90% by 2030 with the goal of decreasing the number of new HIV infections to fewer than 3,000 per year. Reducing new infections to this level would essentially mean that HIV transmissions would be rare and meet the definition of ending the epidemic.

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.
