What Is the National HIV/AIDS Strategy?

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States (2022–2025) was published in December 2021 and provides stakeholders across the nation with a roadmap to accelerate efforts to end the HIV epidemic in the country by 2030.

The Strategy reflects President Biden’s commitment to re-energize and strengthen a whole-of-society response to the epidemic while supporting people with HIV and reducing HIV-associated morbidity and mortality.

The White House’s Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP), part of the Domestic Policy Council, facilitated development of and published the Strategy, which builds on the 2021 HIV National Strategic Plan and the two prior National HIV/AIDS Strategies (2010, 2015).

Key Elements of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy


The Strategy articulates a clear vision to guide the nation’s response to HIV:

The United States will be a place where new HIV infections are prevented, every person knows their status, and every person with HIV has high-quality care and treatment, lives free from stigma and discrimination, and can achieve their full potential for health and well-being across the lifespan.  This vision includes all people, regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, geographic location, or socioeconomic circumstance.


The Strategy sets bold targets for ending the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030, including a 75% reduction in new HIV infections by 2025 and a 90% reduction by 2030. To guide the nation toward realizing the vision, the Strategy 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, coordinated efforts that address the HIV epidemic among all partners and stakeholders.

For stakeholders across the nation, the Strategy details 21 objectives and 78 strategies for federal and nonfederal stakeholders to implement to achieve the goals.

Priority Populations

The Strategy designates five priority populations disproportionately impacted by HIV so that federal agencies and other stakeholders can focus efforts and resources to achieve the greatest impact. The populations are:

  • gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, in particular Black, Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native men;
  • Black women;
  • transgender women;
  • youth aged 13–24 years; and
  • people who inject drugs.

Indicators of Progress

To monitor national progress toward its goals, the Strategy

  • identifies eight core indicators,
  • establishes a disparity indicator stratified by the priority populations to measure progress toward reducing significant HIV-related disparities, and
  • incorporates five indicators focused on quality of life among people with HIV.

How Was the Strategy Developed?

ONAP developed the current Strategy in the latter half of 2021, informed by significant input from community stakeholders, including people living with HIV, and supported by federal partners from nine federal Departments whose programs, policies, services, or activities contribute to our national response to HIV. The Strategy builds on the progress achieved and lessons learned from the prior national strategies and seeks to leverage new tools and opportunities to address the challenges that remain.
