The goal of this plan is to eliminate new HIV transmissions by 2030. Approximately $291 million in federal funding has been allocated for the program in the next year and will focus on the following areas: increasing investments in geographic hotspots, collecting data to identify HIV transmissions, and creating a local HIV “HealthForce” in the targeted areas.

In “Coverage of Federally Recommended Preventive Services: Considerations for Eliminating HIV Transmission by 2030,” Avalere experts weigh in on the challenges and opportunities associated in the PrEP market, focusing on how the administration can leverage existing authority to improve coverage and access to PrEP in public programs and the commercial market.
