Explore CDC’s Role in Ending the HIV Epidemic

To achieve maximum impact through the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative, CDC is focusing resources on communities most affected by HIV. This provides a major boost to the bold initiative to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030. The Plan focuses first on 50 local areas that account for more than half of new HIV diagnoses (48 counties; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Washington, D.C.), and seven states with a substantial rural burden. If additional resources become available, the initiative will eventually expand to other areas. The initiative will scale up four science-based strategies that can end the epidemic: diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond.
