HIV National Strategic Plan
The HIV National Strategic Plan (PDF, 1.7MB) (HIV Plan) is a roadmap for ending the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030. The HIV Plan is the nation’s third consecutive five-year national HIV strategy and covers 2021-2025, with a 10-year goal of reducing new HIV infections by 90% by 2030. (Read about the prior National HIV/AIDS Strategies.)
Goals, Objectives, and Strategies
The HIV Plan focuses on four goals:
- Prevent new HIV infections
- Improve HIV-related health outcomes of people with HIV
- Reduce HIV-related disparities and health inequities
- Achieve integrated and coordinated efforts that address the HIV epidemic among all partners and stakeholders.
For stakeholders across the nation, the HIV Plan:
- Articulates objectives and strategies for each goal.
- Identifies priority populations disproportionately impacted by HIV so that federal agencies and other stakeholders can focus efforts and resources to achieve the greatest impact.
- Sets forth 8 core indicators to monitor progress and a disparity indicator to measure progress toward reducing significant HIV-related disparities.
A Steering Committee consisting of senior representatives from six federal departments, including 12 HHS agencies and offices, worked over two years to guide development of the HIV Plan concurrently with the Viral Hepatitis National Strategic Plan. Significant community input was gathered throughout the process to inform and refine the HIV Plan.
The HIV Plan and the Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative
The HIV Plan and the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative are closely aligned and complementary, with the EHE initiative serving as a leading component of the work by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in collaboration with local, state, and federal partners, to achieve both the Plan’s and the initiative’s goal of reducing new HIV infections by 90% by 2030.
