Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE): Build a Better Alabama
Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) is a bold plan announced in 2019 that aims to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030.
Alabama is one of the first phase high priority areas
due to high levels of rural HIV.
Most infections in the United States are highly concentrated in certain geographic hotspots. More than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses in 2016 and 2017 occurred in only 48 counties; Washington, D.C.; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. In addition, seven states have a disproportionate occurrence
of HIV in rural areas.
