Goals/Objectives of the CDC HIV Prevention Plan

Short-term Milestone 1: By 2010, decrease by at least 10 percent the number of persons in the United States at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV infection by delivering targeted, sustained and evidence-based HIV prevention interventions.

Transmission Objectives:

  1. Among people living with HIV, increase the proportion who consistently engage in behaviors that reduce risk of HIV transmission.
  2. Modified - Among men who have sex with men (MSM), increase the proportion who consistently engage in behaviors that reduce risk for transmission of HIV.
  3. Modified - Among sexually active, HIV-infected women and HIV-infected sexually active heterosexual men, increase the proportion who consistently engage in behaviors that reduce risk for transmission of HIV.
  4. Modified - Among injection drug users (IDUs), increase the proportion that abstain from drug use or, for those who do not abstain, use harm reduction strategies to reduce risk of HIV transmission.
  5. Modified - Among adolescents living with HIV, increase the proportion who consistently engage in behaviors that reduce risk for transmission of HIV, particularly among out-of-school high-risk youth.
  6. New - Increase the proportion of persons living with HIV who effectively access partner notification services.
  7. New - Among persons living with HIV, increase the proportion who receive evidence-based interventions, including mental health, substance abuse, and other appropriate interventions for co-morbid conditions.
  8. New - Among person with acute HIV infection, increase the proportion reached by appropriate HIV behavioral interventions.
  9. New - Increase the proportion of persons living with HIV who disclose their HIV infection before a risk encounter with a new partner and increase the proportion of persons at risk for HIV infection who disclose their HIV status before their first risk encounter with a new partner.
  10. Modified - Increase the proportion of HIV-infected pregnant women who are routinely tested and access prevention interventions including antiretroviral medication, caesarean sections (when appropriate) and infant formula feedings to interrupt perinatal transmission of HIV.
