Previous National HIV/AIDS Strategies
The White House published the United States’ first coordinated national HIV strategy in 2010 and updated it in 2015. First released on July 13, 2010, the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) identified a set of priorities and strategic action steps tied to measurable outcomes to guide the collective national response to the domestic HIV epidemic. Then, in July 2015, the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States: Updated to 2020 was released.
Over that decade, the National HIV/AIDS Strategy changed the way that Americans talked about HIV, prioritized and coordinated resources, and delivered prevention and care services along with other clinical and nonclinical services to support people with HIV or experiencing risk for HIV. The strategies also led to increased collaboration among federal agencies; people with or at risk for HIV; state, local, and tribal governments; health care providers; researchers; faith communities; and many other community partners and stakeholders.
As the expiration of the 2015 NHAS approached, in the absence of an Office of National AIDS Policy at the White House, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy facilitated the development of the follow on to that Strategy with partners from across the federal government. The result was the HIV National Strategic Plan. That Plan was released along with the Viral Hepatitis National Strategic Plan, STI National Strategic Plan, and Vaccines National Strategic Plan.
HIV National Strategic Plan (2021)
On January 15, 2021, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the HIV National Strategic Plan for the United States: A Roadmap to End the Epidemic 2021-2025 (HIV Plan), with a 10-year goal of reducing new HIV infections by 90% by 2030. It detailed four goals with objectives and strategies for use by all partners and stakeholders. The HIV Plan was replaced by the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (2022-2025) in December 2021.
