Ending the AIDS Epidemic in New York State
On June 29, 2014, New York State announced a three-point plan to move us closer to the end of the AIDS epidemic in New York State. The goal is to achieve the first ever decrease in HIV prevalence in New York State by the end of 2020.
The three-point plan:
- Identifies persons with HIV who remain undiagnosed and link them to health care.
- Links and retains persons diagnosed with HIV in health care to maximize virus suppression so they remain healthy and prevent further transmission.
- Facilitates access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for high-risk persons to keep them HIV negative.
Ending the Epidemic (ETE) in New York State will maximize the availability of life-saving, transmission-interrupting treatment for HIV, saving lives and improving the health of New Yorkers. It will move New York from a history of having the worst HIV epidemic in the country to a future where new infections are rare and those living with the disease have normal lifespans with few complications.
