Ending the HIV Epidemic

Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) is a federal initiative which aims to end the HIV epidemic by 2030.
To achieve this goal, the Plan centers around four key strategies: Diagnose, Treat, Prevent, and Respond.

■ Diagnose all people with HIV as early as possible

■ Treat people with HIV rapidly and effectively to reach sustained viral suppression.

■ Prevent new HIV transmissions by using proven interventions, including
pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and syringe services programs (SSPs)

■ Respond quickly to potential HIV outbreaks to get needed prevention and treatment services to people who need them

The pillars of EHE reflect the same strategies as Florida’s plan to eliminate HIV transmission and reduce HIV-related deaths

EHE Approach

EHE centers around a phased approach to infusing resources to the places that need them most. The first phase of the initiative focuses on the areas where the HIV burden is the highest. Seven of these areas are counties in Florida: Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach, and Pinellas.

EHE Indicators

EHE has 6 data indicators to track the progress of ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S.

1. HIV Incidence: the estimated number of new HIV infections in a calendar year.

2. Knowledge of HIV status: the estimated percentage of people with HIV who have received an HIV diagnosis.

3. HIV Diagnoses: the number of people with HIV diagnosed in a calendar year confirmed by laboratory or clinical evidence.

4. Linkage to HIV medical care: the percentage of people with HIV diagnosed in a calendar year who received HIV medical care within one month of diagnosis.

5. HIV Viral suppression: the percentage of people diagnosed with HIV in a calendar year who have less than 200 copies of HIV per milliliter of blood.

6. PrEP coverage: the estimated percentage of individuals with indications for PrEP who received a PrEP prescription in a calendar year.
