According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are nearly 1.2 million people aged 13 years and older living with HIV (PLWH) in the U.S. Since the beginning of the HIV epidemic in the 1980s, advances in public health initiatives and treatments have considerably lengthened the life expectancy of PLWH, while simultaneously reducing transmission and diagnosis of new cases. Nonetheless, an estimated 31,000 people are infected with HIV each year in the United States, with the highest incidence in people from underserved and marginalized communities. As a result, a key component of the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) strategy is to prevent new HIV infections by expanding use of evidence-based interventions.
