Ending the Epidemic
Florida's Unified Plan
Florida’s Unified Ending the Epidemic Plan represents the state as a whole and the counties identified as Phase 1 jurisdictions. This plan is a “living” document that will change and grow as implementation begins.
About Ending the HIV Epidemic
"Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America," or EHE for short, was announced during the February 2019 State of the Union Address. The goal of the initiative is to reduce new HIV infections by 75 percent in the next five years and by 90 percent by 2030.
EHE centers around a phased approach to infusing resources to the places that need them most. The first phase of the initiative focuses on the areas where the HIV burden is the highest. Seven of these areas are counties in Florida: Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach and Pinellas.
The pillars of EHE relfect the same strategies as Florida's plan to elminate HIV transmission and reduce HIV-related deaths.
