To implement the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States: Updated to 2020, Federal agencies and offices developed a detailed Action Plan outlining the specific steps they will take to implement the priorities set forth by the Strategy. This Federal Action Plan (772 KB) was released on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2015.
The Federal Action Plan presents immediate actions (those that can be achieved in calendar year 2016) to be taken by Federal agencies that will move the Nation toward improving its HIV prevention and care outcomes. The Federal Action Plan also includes some longer-terms actions to be achieved within 3 to 5 years. As Federal agencies implement the Strategy and new scientific, policy, and other advances emerge, new activities will be developed and the Federal Action Plan will be revised accordingly.
Progress toward achieving the Strategy goals will be reported by the Federal Government through an annual report at the end of each year, released by the White House Office of National AIDS Policy in conjunction with other White House offices and Federal agencies.
In response, an HIV Care Continuum Federal Working Group was established to support the Initiative and coordinate Federal efforts. The Working Group developed a series of recommendations and action steps, released on World AIDS Day 2013. The objectives and recommendations of the HIV Care Continuum Initiative were later fully integrated into the Steps and Actions of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy: Updated to 2020.
On March 30, 2012, an interagency Working Group was established to explore the intersection of HIV/AIDS, violence against women and girls, and gender-related health disparities. The Working Group was tasked with exploring ways to develop and implement evidence-based and culturally relevant action steps for Federal agencies. The Working Group prioritized addressing intimate partner violence (IPV) because of its high overall prevalence among women and girls, especially among women living with HIV. The Working Group developed a series of recommendations, released on September 6, 2013. These recommendations were later fully integrated into the Steps and Actions of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy: Updated to 2020.
Since the release of the original National HIV/AIDS Strategy in 2010, the White House Office of National AIDS Policy has continued to report on progress in achieving the Strategy’s goals.
