On July 13, 2010 the White House released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). This ambitious plan is the nation’s first-ever comprehensive coordinated HIV/AIDS roadmap with clear and measurable targets to be achieved by 2015.

Lower the annual number of new infections by 25%
Reduce HIV transmission by 30%
Increase the percentage of people living with HIV who know their serostatus from 79% to 90%
2. INCREASE ACCESS TO CARE AND IMPROVE HEALTH OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV
Increase the proportion of newly diagnosed patients linked to clinical care from 65% to 85%
Increase the proportion of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program clients who are in continuous care from 73% to 80%
Increase the number of Ryan White clients with permanent housing from 82% to 86%
3. REDUCE HIV-RELATED HEALTH DISPARITIES
Improve access to prevention and care services for all Americans

Increase the proportion of HIV-diagnosed Blacks with undetectable viral load by 20%
Increase the proportion of HIV-diagnosed Latinos with undetectable viral load by 20%
Cultural Competency & HIV/AIDS
Culturally competent service providers are crucial to recruiting and retaining people living with HIV/AIDS into primary care, particularly when they are members of historically disenfranchised communities and populations such as people of color, gay men, women, and substance users.
HIV Prevention Among Injection Drug Users (IDUs)
Access to materials and resources developed to assist HIV prevention providers working with IDUs and their sex partners.
Social Determinants of Health
Social determinants of health are those social, economic, and environmental factors which influence health and health disparities. These factors are integral in addressing and understanding health disparities—in particular health disparities associated with HIV/AIDS.
