Ryan White Part B Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE)

In February 2019, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with several other agencies came together to present Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America. The plan, which aims to reduce new HIV transmissions by 75 percent by 2025 and by 90 percent by 2030, focused its Phase I efforts on seven states with a substantial number of HIV diagnoses in rural areas, along with 48 counties, Washington, D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico. These jurisdictions, which include the state of South Carolina, accounted for more than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses in 2016 and 2017.
 
(A full list of funded states, counties, and territories can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/endhiv/docs/Ending-HIV-geographic-focus-508.pdf).
 
The State of South Carolina met the CDC Phase I criteria because (1) 10 percent or more of the new diagnoses in 2016 and 2017 were in rural locations, those with populations below 50,000, (2) 75 or more new diagnoses occurred in 2016 and 2017, and (3) the state did not have a priority county.
 
The Federal Department of Health and Human Services funds communities to design and implement local program to address the plan's four “pillars”:
 
Diagnose – Diagnose all people with HIV as early as possible.
Prevent – Prevent new HIV Transmissions by using proven interventions, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and syringe service programs (SSPs).
Treat – Treat the infection rapidly and effectively to achieve sustained viral suppression.
Respond – Respond quickly to potential HIV outbreaks to get needed prevention and treatments services to people who need them.
