National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States: Updated to 2020   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The Nation's first comprehensive National HIV/AIDS [human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome] Strategy for the United States (Strategy) was released in 2010, and in the subsequent five years, people and organizations have joined together around its vision and goals. […] This is the first update of the Strategy (Update), which is designed to look ahead to 2020. The Update reflects the hard work accomplished and the lessons learned since 2010. Moreover, it incorporates the scientific advances that could one day bring the United States, and the world, closer to virtually eliminating new HIV infections, effectively supporting all people living with HIV to lead long and healthy lives and eliminating the disparities that persist among some populations. The Strategy remains a steady foundation on which to build future efforts. As such, this Update retains its vision and four main goals through 2020. At the same time, the Strategy is also a living document, designed to be updated. The Update includes the following changes: 1.) The Steps and Recommended Actions under each of the goals have been revised to reflect past progress and activities to meet the Strategy goals (see 'At-A-Glance' summaries on pages 8-11). 2.) The Update has 10 quantitative indicators-some of which are new additions, and some of which are revised-to better monitor progress and ensure that the Nation is constantly moving in the right direction to achieve its goals (see list on page 12 and detailed information in the Indicator Development and Progress Appendix). In addition, three areas have been identified as priorities for developing indicators: PrEP [Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis], stigma, and HIV among transgender persons."
