In February 2019, the President announced the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative. This comprehensive initiative, known as EHE, aims to reduce new HIV infections in the U.S. by 75% in five years and by 90% by 2030. King County was one of 48 counties eligible for EHE funding and multiple organizations in King County received funding to engage in EHE activities. To support collaboration and coordination, Public Health - Seattle & King County received funding to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders to develop a comprehensive EHE plan. The resulting "Plan for ending the HIV Epidemic in King County" can be found at the link below. EHE-funded organizations are now in the process of implementing EHE activities and this website will soon include information and dashboards about the impact of these activities over time.

The Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative focuses on four key strategies:
