  CDC’s Progress in Ending the HIV Epidemic

Updates on Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative: A Plan for America activities, including work in "jumpstart" sites, are available from two notable sources. They include slide presentations from an early 2020 meeting of PACHA, the President's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, along with several CDC fact sheets. 

  • PACHA updates, presented on HIV.gov, include slide presentations from the jump-start sites in Baltimore, DeKalb County (Georgia) and East Baton Rouge Parish. Slides outline epidemiological data on where local epidemics are concentrated (most often, among gay/bisexual African American men), along with summaries of interventions. The most common techniques involve expansion of current capacity in terms of expanded testing (Baltimore), rapid start of anti-retroviral therapy immediately after diagnosis (East Baton Rouge), and appointment reminders to further support retention in care (Georgia). 
  • CDC updates on the above three jump-start sites are also briefly summarized in CDC’s Progress in Ending the HIV Epidemic, a March 2020 fact sheet we ran across in NACCHO's Essential Elements news page.
