Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America

On Tuesday, July 23, 2019, HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau Associate Administrator Laura Cheever, MD, ScM, and HRSA Bureau of Primary Health Care Associate Administrator Jim Macrae, MA, MPP, met with public health leaders in South Carolina to discuss the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative and the progress being made in ending the HIV epidemic in the state.  South Carolina is one of seven states with substantial rural HIV burden, with an HIV/AIDS incidence case rate of a little over eight for every 100k residents.

Through HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and the HRSA-funded Health Center Program, the agency will play a leading role in helping to diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond to end the HIV epidemic.
