    • Description:
      HIV prevention and treatment have brought the annual number of new HIV infections to an all-time low since the start of the epidemic.1 People with HIV can live long, healthy lives thanks

      to improved antiretroviral therapy. Powerful prevention tools – including simple and effective HIV treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) – can practically eliminate transmission if used by all who need them. Improvements in HIV surveillance mean we can identify and respond to potential outbreaks more effectively than ever.

      Yet progress in HIV prevention has slowed. Many people still aren’t getting the prevention and care they need. The nation’s opioid crisis poses a continual threat of new HIV outbreaks due to injection drug use.2 While the full impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic on our HIV prevention efforts is unclear, it has thrown into sharp relief the extent to which longstanding, systemic health and social inequities among different racial/ethnic groups negatively affect health outcomes.

      For far too long, these inequities – including discrimination, stigma, income, systemic racism, and mistrust of the healthcare system – have led to persistent disparities in HIV risk, prevention, treatment, and care, particularly for Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino people. Without bold action to address these challenges today, we could see an increase in HIV in the United States.
