2017 National HIV/AIDS Strategy Progress Report

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently released the 2017 National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) Progress Report, the sixth such report since the first NHAS was created in 2010. The report was developed by members of the NHAS Federal Interagency Workgroup, which coordinates implementation and monitoring of the Strategy across the federal government. The report found that the U.S. has continued to make important progress in reducing new HIV infections, improving health outcomes among people living with HIV, and reducing some HIV-related disparities. However, it also shows that progress has not been equal across all populations and regions. There continues to be disparities in HIV risk and diagnoses for gay and bisexual men, stable housing among people living with HIV, and HIV diagnoses in the Southern United States.
