We’re getting ahead of HIV.
America’s HIV Epidemic Analysis Dashboard (AHEAD) graphically visualizes data on the six indicators used to track progress towards ending the HIV epidemic (EHE) in America. By tracking progress, jurisdictions, communities, and stakeholders will be able to monitor movement towards reducing new HIV transmissions by at least 90% by 2030. This tool is envisioned to be an asset that will provide the most up to date information available about EHE progress to help inform national and jurisdictional decision-making.Frequently Asked Questions
The EHE Phase I Jurisdictions
In 2019, the federal government proposed the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) initiative, which provides a targeted infusion of new resources and support to local communities in working together and with the federal government to end the HIV epidemic in America. To achieve maximum impact, the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative focuses its Phase I efforts in 48 counties, Washington, DC, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, where more than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses occurred in 2016 and 2017, and an additional seven states with a substantial number of HIV diagnoses in rural areas, bringing the total number of Phase I jurisdictions to 57. In order to end this epidemic at the national level, we must start with ending it at the local level.
This map displays the 57 jurisdictions identified by the EHE initiative, including 48 counties, Washington, DC, San Juan, Puerto Rico, seven states with substantial burden of HIV in rural areas, and states/territories that contain one or more of the priority counties/areas of the EHE Initiative.
Diagnoses is the number of people with HIV diagnosed in a given year confirmed by laboratory or clinical evidence.
Linkage to HIV Medical Care
Linkage to HIV medical care is the percentage of people with HIV diagnosed in a given year who have received medical care for their HIV infection within one month of diagnosis.
Viral suppression is the percentage of people living with diagnosed HIV infection in a given year who have an amount of HIV that is less than 200 copies per milliliter of blood.
PrEP coverage is the estimated percentage of individuals with indications for PrEP classified as having been prescribed PrEP.
