CDC Plans on-the-Ground 'HIV Elimination Teams' for Trump Plan

Stopping The Transmission of HIV in The States

Stopping The Transmission of HIV in The States

President Donald Trump's call for ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S.in 10 years during his State of the Union address last week was lauded by HIV clinical experts who credited his willingness to call attention to an epidemic that still infects almost 40,000 people a year. More than one million Americans live with the disease.

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the agency will happily move forward on the administration's new initiative to eliminate HIV/AIDS, while stressing that tools within CDC reach "must be applied now" for maximum impact. "Health centers are also a key point of entry for people undiagnosed with HIV", said Sigounas, who explained that almost 2 million people receive HIV tests at the health centers annually.

Through collaboration across HHS by the CDC, National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Indian Health Service (IHS), the plan aims to reduce new HIV diagnoses by 75% within 5 years and by 90% within 10 years. It includes curbing the speed of latent infections by recurrently testing people who find themselves at extreme danger, providing them medicine known as PrEP to stop an infection and beginning individuals on virus-suppressing medication instantly after prognosis. For years, the tireless efforts of HIV advocates to end the HIV epidemic in the United States had been ignored by broad swaths of the political establishment in Washington, with only a handful of doggedly determined champions in Congress to make sure that funding for HIV programming wasn't cut and to fight back against the discrimination, criminalization, and stigmatization of people living with HIV. "And he knows that we need to get to zero HIV infections in San Francisco". The city, along with Montgomery and Prince George's counties, is among the areas where the federal health department estimates about half of new HIV cases occur - including 48 of some 3,000 counties nationwide, seven states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.

"It showed we had a very geographically focused outbreak, that if we could augment the capacity of those 48 counties to respond to new infections we could drastically reduce the number of new infections", he said.

Dr Anthony Fauci directs the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and has always been on the forefront of the fight against HIV/Aids. Worldwide, three million people 19 years old or younger are infected with HIV.

Millions of people worldwide have died from HIV, but the advent of potent antiretroviral drug cocktails in the mid-1990s revolutionized care, keeping viral levels down to undetectable levels and stopping the onset of Aids.

Client Coordinator Abby Silverman says the fact Orlando has been designated by the HHS plan as one of forty-eight counties that are "hot-spots" for new HIV cases should equate to more funding for the program. Hardy said any meaningful policy to lower HIV infections would have to target interventions that expand care for LGBTQ individuals since gay and bisexual men account for almost 70% of new HIV infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

HIV cases in MS are among the highest in the nation.

"Every 44 minutes, a 13- to 29-year-old gay or bisexual man in the U.S. gets diagnosed with HIV", Mustanski added. We have PrEP now which is highly effective and readily available.

Officers have been planning an offensive against H.I.V. with the precision of a Navy campaign. They intend to deploy platoons of community health workers to step up the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infections. The government has "been trying to address HIV, but never in such a focused way", he said.
