In the United States, it is estimated that prevention efforts have already averted more than 350,000 HIV infections.1 Since the height of the epidemic in the mid-1980s, the annual number of new HIV infections in the United States has been reduced by more than two-thirds, and recent scientific breakthroughs have equipped us with an unprecedented number of effective tools to prevent infection.2-6
CDC believes that maximizing the impact of these tools within the framework of a new approach called High-Impact Prevention offers more hope than ever before for reversing the U.S. HIV epidemic. Through High-Impact Prevention, CDC is working to advance the goals of the first National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) and to help ensure that HIV prevention efforts have the greatest possible impact.
