During his second State of the Union address, President Donald J. Trump announced a commitment to end the HIV epidemic in the United States in the next decade. This means cutting new HIV infections by at least 90% by 2030.
The CDC reported that 38,739 new HIV diagnoses were made in the U.S. in 2017, with youth aged 13 to 24 years comprising nearly one-quarter of the diagnoses. Of these cases, 87% were young men — most acquiring their infection through male-to-male sexual contact (93%). Infections among young women were often acquired through heterosexual contact (86%) or injection drug use (11%).
