HIV Prevention in the United States:
Expanding the Impact
|Expanding the Impact|
HIV has become less visible in United States since the first cases were reported more than 30 years ago, but the crisis hasn’t gone away. We’ve made great strides in HIV prevention and treatment, and new infections have dropped more than two-thirds since the height of the epidemic. But, the reality remains that about 50,000 new infections occur each year in the United States and, today, more than one million people are living with HIV in our nation. Reducing HIV rates in the U.S. is not only possible – it’s imperative – and new advances in HIV prevention can help us change the course of this epidemic.
This interactive online package contains statistics describing the domestic epidemic today and outlines the prevention tools that are proven to fight infection. Digging deeper, you can explore progress to date and get more information on remaining challenges to ending this epidemic. Finally, you can learn more about CDC’s “High-Impact Prevention” approach, which aims to expand the impact of prevention to help achieve the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.
