Jurisdictions

Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) focuses first on 50 local areas that account for more than half of new HIV diagnoses, and seven states with a substantial rural burden. The initiative infuses the 57 priority jurisdictions with additional resources, technology, and expertise to expand HIV Prevention and treatment activities. If sufficient resources become available, the initiative will eventually expand to other areas.
