The Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative aims to reduce new HIV infections by 75% in the next five years, and by 90% before 2030.
To achieve success, the Initiative should direct more federal resources to HIV prevention programs; engage the HIV community in a meaningful way; strengthen access to health care; protect Medicaid from cuts; ensure a robust clinical workforce; and address stigma, discrimination and other social determinants of health.
As federal agencies and local communities begin to take action as part of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative, use this page to find resources and learn more about how to get involved.
On Dec. 1, 2021, the Biden-Harris Administration released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States (2022 to 2025) as a roadmap for ending HIV as an epidemic in the U.S. The White House Office of National AIDS Policy Director Harold Phillips discussed the updated NHAS with HIVMA leaders on Dec. 7. Check back on this page for additional information on the updated NHAS.
The federal Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative seeks to achieve a 75% reduction in HIV incidence in the United States by 2025 and at least a 90% reduction by 2030, for an estimated 250,000 total HIV infections averted.
To end HIV as an epidemic by 2030, significant new resources must be provided to HIV programs. Over the last two years, Congress has appropriated additional funding for the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative. A significant investment of funding will be needed for domestic HIV/AIDS programs, including the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative.
Social Advocacy Resources
The Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative could help communities across the country – but first, Congress will need to provide the increased resources requested by the President to help end HIV as an epidemic and to provide support for maintaining the health services, public health programs necessary for both a sustainable HIV response and for the overall health of our nation. Ensuring a robust Medicaid program and adoption of the Medicaid expansion throughout the United States also is critical. Take action with the click of a button by Tweeting your support.
