Geographic Priorities for Maximum Impact

A CDC analysis of HIV data found that more than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses* occurred in only 48 counties, Washington, D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The analysis also found that seven states had a substantial rural burden.**

To achieve maximum impact, the first year of Ending the HIV Epidemic, if funded, will infuse those 57 geographic focus areas with additional resources, technology, and expertise to expand HIV prevention and treatment activities. Efforts will expand nationally within 10 years should additional resources be available.

** States where 10% or more of new diagnoses in 2016 and 2017 were in rural areas (less than 50,000 population); at least 75 total new diagnoses statewide; and the state did not have a priority county.
