Reframing and recommitting to the 2025 ETE Goals 2020 Executive Summary: Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S.
A COMMUNITY ROADMAP FOR FEDERAL ACTION...
Two years since its launch and one year into the implementation of a federal Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative, the ACT NOW: END AIDS (ANEA) coalition has updated the Executive Summary of its groundbreaking community-driven policy paper: Ending the HIV Epidemic (EtE) in the United States: A Roadmap for Federal Action. As our nation tackles the challenges and uncertainty related to the 2020 elections, COVID-19, and racism as a public health crisis, ANEA reaffirms and reframes our commitment to ending HIV through the kind of disruptive innovation that can only be achieved with the leadership of people living with HIV and the communities most affected by the virus.
For the first time since the National HIV/AIDS Strategy in 2010, the domestic HIV community came together to call on the U.S. government to declare an official goal of ending the domestic HIV epidemic by 2025 . The Roadmap demands federal legislative and regulatory policies and sufficient appropriations to achieve this goal.
The Act Now: End AIDS coalition, with a process managed by AIDS United, solicited input from the larger HIV, public health and reproductive health communities to develop a policy paper, titled Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States: A Roadmap for Federal Action, released on November 30, 2018. To date, 250 HIV and community organizations from across the U.S. have provided their endorsement.
