We’re getting ahead of HIV.Ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S. by 2030 is possible by scaling testing, prevention, treatment, and response activities to areas with high rates of HIV. America’s HIV Epidemic Analysis Dashboard (AHEAD) supports this effort by tracking data on 6 HIV indicators that will have the greatest impact on ending the epidemic in local communities and across the U.S.
Ending the HIV epidemic starts at the community level. AHEAD facilitates easy, seamless access to data for EHE priority areas and the American public, focusing on 48 counties, Washington, DC and San Juan, Puerto Rico along with 7 priority states, mostly Southern and rural, with high rates of HIV. AHEAD also shows data for the 43 remaining states for which data are available.
