TargetHIV

Enhancement of HIV services in sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics is but one of the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) activities being undertaken by EHE jurisdictions, under federal funding. STD Clinics Contribute to Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States, a May 2021 HIV.gov blog, summarizes the work to date of seven EHE jurisdictions, from tele-PrEP to enhanced patient follow-up. 

HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau has a number of resources to support the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) to improve screening, testing, and treatment of STDs (often called STIs, sexually transmitted infections) among people with or at risk for HIV. Below are highlights:
