The report identifies key elements of a plan to ‘End the Epidemic.’ One of the most significant elements of some emerging plans is to treat HIV earlier by offering same-day or rapid start of antiretroviral therapy (ART) when individuals receive an HIV diagnosis or are re-engaged in HIV care. Other significant elements include continued focus on monitoring engagement and actively intervening to address barriers to care and an emphasis on scaling up access to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and ensuring appropriate access to post-exposure prophylaxis. The report also provides some leading examples of jurisdictions across the county that have developed plans. The jurisdictions highlighted in the report include New York State, New York City, Washington State, the District of Columbia, Houston, and Los Angeles.
