HIV/AIDS annual reports
These reports include data tables, figures, and feature articles describing the local and state-wide epidemiology of HIV and AIDS in King County and Washington state.
The report highlights remarkable progress in combatting HIV, yet additional efforts are needed to end the HIV epidemic. With support from federal funding, a coalition of organizations in King County is working to expand access to low-barrier HIV care.
In 2019, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released its Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) plan, which includes jurisdictions most impacted by HIV, including King County. This 2022 report – which includes data through the end of 2021 – is the third to be structured according to each of the four pillars of EHE: 1) Diagnose; 2) Treat; 3) Prevent, and 4) Respond.
Articles include data documenting progress toward meeting EHE objectives, including descriptions of ongoing local prevention activities. This is also the first issue evaluating our progress towards the EHE goals using 2019 as a baseline.
