The HIV epidemic in the United States remains a serious health crisis. Determined efforts over the past four decades, however, have produced major advances, including a large and growing array of effective treatments and prevention modalities. Nonetheless, these achievements obscure a reality that many people living with HIV are not doing well. Only about two-thirds of people living with HIV achieve and maintain HIV viral suppression, co-morbid conditions continue to threaten their health, and other aspects of people’s lives remain challenging. Therefore, there is a need to adopt a more holistic vision of success. In December 2021, President Biden released the latest National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States, which identifies priority actions for 2022-2025. More than ever before, it focuses on improving quality of life. Sustaining this focus must be the guiding light for our collective efforts to achieve the Strategy’s vision.
