The Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States (EHE) initiative aims to reduce new HIV infections by 90% by 2030. The initiative includes four pillars: DIAGNOSE, TREAT, PREVENT, and RESPOND, and will scale up science-based strategies for each that can end the epidemic.
Responding quickly to potential HIV outbreaks can get vital prevention and treatment services to people who need them.
From December 2015-December 2019, 242 clusters were detected.
Transmission rates in clusters identified using CDC’s cluster detection approach are 8–11x as high as the U.S. average.
CDC works with jurisdictions to ensure they are prepared to quickly detect and respond to HIV clusters and outbreaks.
