Reaching our nation’s HIV prevention goals is essential for protecting and improving the health of all people who are at risk for or living with HIV infection. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of HIV/ AIDS Prevention (DHAP) Strategic Plan supports the four goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States (NHAS) related to: reducing new HIV infections; increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV; reducing HIV-related disparities and health inequities; and achieving a more coordinated national response to the HIV epidemic.
In 2013, CDC published the first National HIV Prevention Progress Report (NPR) to describe progress toward achieving the goals and objectives of the DHAP Strategic Plan for 2011- 2015 (aligned with the NHAS goals for 2015). The report used data from CDC HIV surveillance systems to report on 21 key indicators. The first NPR served as a baseline report. This second NPR describes progress toward 2015 goals for 15 indicators adding additional data available for 2010-2014. Years of available data vary by indicator. The report highlights differences by age, gender, race/ethnicity, and HIV transmission risk—recognizing that progress among those disproportionately affected by HIV is important for achieving national goals and improving health equity.
In the NPR, progress toward achieving 2015 goals is evaluated against annual targets. These targets are based on the assumption that improvement will accelerate over time as more of the benefits of a high-impact approach to HIV prevention are realized. Achieving all of our nation’s HIV prevention goals will not be easy. It is dependent upon progress at the local level and in groups that are disproportionately affected by HIV.
