Background and Discussion:
Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) is a plan that aims to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030. The plan leverages critical scientific advances in HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and outbreak response by coordinating the highly successful programs, resources, and infrastructure of many U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies and offices.


Expected Impact:
Impact of the initiative to significantly reduce new HIV infections over the project period will include 1) implementation of strategies to treat HIV rapidly and effectively to achieve sustained viral suppression; 2) reducing the effects of co-occurring conditions; 3) reducing disparities in Harris County and addressing the needs of vulnerable populations; and 4) implementation of strategies to rapidly provide HIV treatment services in response to potential outbreaks.



Alternative Options:
There is no alternative to not adding this position. Position is recommended by grant to ensure development, implementation, and completion of work plan activities.
