Ending the HIV Epidemic in Los Angeles County

Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. was launched by the federal administration in 2020. Its goal is to reduce HIV by 75% by 2025 and 90% by 2030 to end the HIV epidemic. To reach this goal, Los Angeles County needs a significant scale-up and expanded reach of proven and new interventions to work towards ending the HIV epidemic.

Through collaboration with key stakeholders and community partners, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Division of HIV and STD Programs (DHSP), plans to guide, implement, and evaluate activities that enhance the current Los Angeles County HIV portfolio; align strategies with the four pillars of EHE, and further advance efforts to prevent HIV and improve HIV-related health outcomes among persons living with HIV.

The Ending the HIV Epidemic Plan for Los Angeles County is a living document and includes proposed strategies and activities to be implemented through 2025 and further expanded through 2030. The Plan is subject to change based on data, program evaluation and outcomes, and the needs of the communities most impacted by HIV.

Prior to the launch of EHE, LA County developed and released its own jurisdictional plan in November 2017, the Los Angeles County HIV/AIDS Strategy for 2020 and Beyond (LACHAS). LACHAS was developed by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health’s Division of HIV and STD Programs (DHSP) in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Commission on HIV, and LACHAS Community Co-chairs, Grissel Granados, and Terry Smith.
