Halting U.S. HIV Epidemic By 2030: Difficult But Doable
National Public Radio

Trump administration health officials are spelling out their ambitious plan to stop the spread of HIV in the U.S. within the next 10 years.

The plan would target 48 counties where the rate of HIV spread is the highest, along with Washington, D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Seven states with high rates of HIV in rural areas would also be targeted, including Oklahoma, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Alabama, South Carolina and Mississippi.

The release of plan details follows a brief mention of the goal by President Trump in his State of the Union address Tuesday evening.
