Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE)

The EHE initiative is scaling up four science-based strategies that can end the epidemic: Diagnose, Treat, Prevent, and Respond. This work includes expanding access to HIV/STI testing in nontraditional settings, increasing PrEP access for un/underinsured persons, and rapidly linking people to essential HIV care and treatment services.

Our Work

Diagnose all people with HIV as early as possible ​

Treat people with HIV rapidly and effectively to reach sustained viral suppression

Prevent new HIV transmissions by using proven interventions, including PrEP and syringe services programs

Respond quickly to potential HIV outbreaks to get needed prevention and treatment services to people who need them

Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)

A person living with HIV who is on treatment and has an undetectable viral load cannot sexually transmit HIV.

Free and low-cost HIV treatment services for un/underinsured people living with HIV in and around Mecklenburg County, North Carolina:
