The National HIV/AIDS Strategy Updated to 2020

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy Updated to 2020

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy from the White House focuses on these core goals:

1445470058812

GOAL 1: REDUCING NEW HIV INFECTIONS

Step 1.A: Intensify HIV prevention efforts in the communities where HIV is
most heavily concentrated

Step 1.B: Expand efforts to prevent HIV infection using a
combination of effective evidence-based approaches

Step 1.C: Educate all Americans with easily accessible, scientifically
accurate information about HIV risks, prevention, and transmission

GOAL 2: INCREASING ACCESS TO CARE AND IMPROVING HEALTH OUTCOMES
FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV

Step 2.A: Establish seamless systems to link people to care immediately after
diagnosis, and support retention in care to achieve viral suppression that can maximize
the benefits of early treatment and reduce transmission risk

Step 2.B: Take deliberate steps to increase the capacity of systems as well as the number
and diversity of available providers of clinical care and related services for people living with HIV

Step 2.C: Support comprehensive, coordinated, patient-centered care for people
living with HIV, including addressing HIV-related co-occurring conditions and
challenges meeting basic needs, such as housing

GOAL 3: REDUCING HIV-RELATED DISPARITIES AND HEALTH INEQUITIES 

Step 3.A: Reduce HIV-related disparities in communities at high risk for HIV infection

Step 3.B: Adopt structural approaches to reduce HIV infections and improve
health outcomes in high-risk communities

Step 3.C: Reduce stigma and eliminate discrimination associated with HIV status

GOAL 4: ACHIEVING A MORE COORDINATED NATIONAL RESPONSE TO THE HIV EPIDEMIC 

Step 4.A: Increase the coordination of HIV programs across the Federal government
and between Federal agencies and State, territorial, Tribal, and local governments

Step 4.B: Develop improved mechanisms to monitor and report on progress
toward achieving national goals

 

ARE and other community organizations can help to achieve these goals in our community. Increased access to HIV testing, HIV care, support services, and education can help reduce the incidence of new HIV infections and help to dispel the stigma around HIV.
