Miami-Dade County Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Plan

Ending the HIV Epidemic

2022-2026 Miami-Dade County Integrated HIV Prevention and Care Plan

Goal 1: Prevent new HIV infections.
Goal 2: Improve HIV-related health outcomes of people with HIV.
Goal 3: Reduce HIV-related disparities and health inequities.
Goal 4: Achieve integrated, coordinated efforts that address the HIV epidemic among all partners and stakeholders.

For over a decade, the Miami-Dade County (MDC) Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA) has been a national HIV/AIDS hot spot.

The EMA leads the State of Florida in the total number of people with HIV; 27,782 people with HIV – more than 23% of the entire state’s population of people with HIV – lived in the EMA in Calendar Year (CY) 2020.

For nine of the past 10 years, the South Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) has led the nation in the annual new-infection rate for HIV.

During that time, the MDC Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part A/Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI), through the MDC Office of Management and Budget (OMB or local Part A/MAI Recipient); the Florida Department of Health in MDC (FDOH-MDC); and the Miami-Dade HIV/AIDS Partnership (Partnership), the official RWHAP Planning Council, have been coordinating responses to the HIV epidemic, linking programs in community education, supporting HIV prevention, HIV testing, and linkage to care activities, as well as strengthening core medical and support services for people with HIV.

These collaborative activities include the Getting to Zero initiative in 2016, the 2017-2021 Miami-Dade County Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Plan (2017-21 Integrated Plan); the National HIV/AIDS Strategy 2022-2025; the Ending the HIV Epidemic Jurisdictional Plan; and the ongoing cooperation between the Partnership’s Prevention and Strategic Planning Committees.

Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE)* leverages critical scientific advances in HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and outbreak response by coordinating the highly successful programs, resources, and infrastructure of many HHS agencies and offices and providing a targeted infusion of new resources and support to the jurisdictions most heavily impacted.

The Partnership’s Prevention Committee and Strategic Planning Committee members work jointly to monitor activities of the local Ending the HIV Epidemic initiatives as part of the Miami-Dade County Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Plan.

EHE in Miami-Dade County

Ending the HIV Epidemic*
” Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE)” is a bold plan that aims to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030. The new initiative seeks to reduce the number of new HIV infections by 75 percent within five years, and then by at least 90 percent within 10 years. Due to the high incidence of HIV, Miami-Dade County was chosen as one of the 57 jurisdictions to implement this initiative. Read more about Miami-Dade County’s infographic , Miami-Dade County’s situational analysis , and the EHE Jurisdictional Plan with the strategies and activities in Miami-Dade County.

Miami-Dade HIV/AIDS Partnership Prevention Committee and Strategic Planning Committee members work jointly to review the Jurisdictional Ending the HIV Epidemic Plan, and coordinate activities related to the Miami-Dade County Integrated HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Plan All meetings are open to the public.
