AHEAD is "one tool" supporting and/or tracking the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE). AHEAD helps track the six EHE indicators in areas with the highest burden of HIV. It complements and serves as one of many important implementation elements of the EHE initiative and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. This interactive dashboard can be used to inform planning and is a starting place to explore other HIV data sources.
Ending the HIV Epidemic in the US is possible by scaling up testing, prevention, treatment, and response activities in areas with the highest burden of HIV.
AHEAD is a program of HIV.gov. HIV.gov’s mission is to provide information on federal resources, programs, and policies.
The Six EHE Indicators:
Incidence is the estimated number of new HIV infections in a given year.
Goal: Reduce number of new HIV infections by 75% by 2025 and 90% by 2030.

Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) seeks to reduce the number of new HIV infections in the United States by 75 percent by 2025, and then by at least 90 percent by 2030, for an estimated 250,000 total HIV infections averted. AHEAD is paid for by EHE.
