Ever wonder how the opioid and HIV epidemics affect your neck of the woods? For answers to these and many more questions, visit two new interactive websites by amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research: the Ending the HIV Epidemic Database (ehe.amfar.org) and the Opioid & Health Indicators Database (opioid.amfar.org). In February, Trump announced an initiative titled “Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.” (The amfAR site refers to this as the Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative, or EHE.) The federal plan sets the goal of lowering new HIV rates nationwide by 75% in five years and 90% in 10 years. This year’s event will focus in large part on the federal HIV initiative and how jurisdictions and advocates can work with the government to build plans to fight the epidemic.
