EHE Plans and Websites
Now is the time for bolder, more collaborative action. While an effective national strategy and federal resources are central to ending the epidemic, HIV prevention ultimately happens at the community level. Success will require continued commitment by, and partnerships among, state and local governments, health officials, community organizations, healthcare providers, people with HIV, and others who could benefit from HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.
To achieve the goal of reducing new HIV infections in the United States by 75% by 2025 and 90% by 2030, health departments and community partners are working collaboratively to develop and implement plans to End the HIV Epidemic (EHE). The planning process includes engagement of the community, HIV planning bodies, HIV prevention and care providers, and other partners in aligning resources and activities to develop jurisdictional EHE plans. EHE plans are based on four pillars: Diagnose, Treat, Prevent, and Respond, and serve as a jurisdiction-specific roadmap to guide community and health department collaborations and programs/services implementation.
Through PS19-1906 Component B, all Phase 1 jurisdictions were required to feature their EHE plans on a public-facing website. The table featured below provides direct access to these established Phase 1 EHE websites and plans. Though the funded EHE planning period for CDC PS19-1906 Component B has ended and all plans have been submitted to CDC, all EHE plans are living documents and will serve as blueprints for local or jurisdictional EHE implementation activities. Phase 1 jurisdictions are committed to continuous evaluation and will adjust plans based on ongoing local feedback and progress of their implementation activities. The table will be updated as plans become available to NASTAD.
