Target-setting method justification
The target was selected to align with the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) Initiative, which seeks to reduce new HIV infections by 90 percent by 2030 by scaling up four evidence-based strategies- diagnose, treat, prevent, and respond. The knowledge of status objective is associated with the diagnose strategy, and the target is to increase to 95 percent. This target aligns with the 95-95-95 Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) plan to accelerate action to end AIDS by 2030.
