Join The Fight: Let’s End HIV Together

Help stop the spread and bring the HIV epidemic to an end.

Since 1981, 700,000+ lives have been lost to HIV. Currently, more than 1.1 million people are living with HIV, with many more at risk of infection. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has mapped out a plan to end the epidemic in the United States by 2030. To accomplish this, four key steps must be followed by health care professionals and patients alike: diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond. 


Knowing how many people are living an HIV positive life is a major part of ending the epidemic, as 1 in 7 people don’t know they have HIV. Whether you suspect you have HIV or not, get tested to know your status. HIV testing is quick, painless and often times free and accessible at local health centers

While it may be scary to get tested, knowing your status is good for your health and the health of your sexual partners. If you receive a positive diagnosis, treatment is available to help you live a healthy, happy life.


If you have HIV, getting treatment right away and taking it consistently as prescribed is essential for your health. This is important to prevent the spread of HIV as 80% of new infections are transmitted by those who are not getting treatment. Schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider or talk to your doctor about available treatment options


Knowing what preventative measures to use in advance of sex can greatly reduce the risks of HIV. Using condoms (for men and women) and knowing your HIV status by getting tested for HIV are two of the main preventative measures you can take to stop the spread of HIV. 

Another preventative measure that can be used is Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), a pill that reduces the risk of HIV transmission. If you have HIV, your partner can take PrEP to lower their risk of exposure to HIV, and vice versa.


The CDC works to actively address areas where HIV infections are higher to quickly identify potential outbreaks and deliver HIV treatment and prevention resources. Currently, plans for priority areas in certain states and counties have been established to reduce disparities in at-risk communities. 

The HIV epidemic impacts communities worldwide. You can make an impact on the success of the campaign to end the epidemic by 2030. Join the fight and stop the spread of HIV by visiting
