What's New in HIV Science
CDC has provided funding to HIV partners to help implement programs that will help curb the increase of HIV infections. These programs facilitated with our partners and grantees are critical in the goal of eliminating HIV infection in the United States.
CDC has worked with key cities to create effective policies and programs to curb the tide of HIV infections in those cities. These cities have higher rates of HIV due to a number of factors therefore making them key locations for studies.
CDC is continuing to collaborate with local departments of health, public health partners, community-based organizations in research and also creating effective programs, in both prevention and treatment to help prevent further infections of HIV.

- The cost-effectiveness of HIV prevention efforts has long been a criterion in setting program priorities. The basic principle is straightforward: choose those options that provide the greatest outcome for the least cost.
- The fact sheet Projecting Possible Future Courses of the HIV Epidemic in the United States compares the cost-effectiveness of three different prevention investment scenarios.
