The newly announced Ending the HIV Epidemic (EtHE) initiative aims to reduce the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) incidence in the United States by 90% within 10 years. The initiative focuses on 50 high-burden counties and 7 Southern states with high rural HIV incidences, and it includes 4 pillars: (1) early diagnosis; (2) the treatment of HIV to achieve viral suppression; (3) the prevention of HIV infection in high-risk subgroups; and (4) the rapid detection of and response to transmission hotspots [1].
