Ending the Epidemic

Our diverse territory has made great strides in HIV identification, management and care. Even so, seven of our counties are identified in the Department of Health & Human Services' Plan to End the Epidemic as having some of the highest numbers of new HIV diagnoses, and two of our states highlighted as having some of the heaviest burdens of rural HIV.

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Under grant number U1OHA33225 (South Central AIDS Education and Training Center). It was awarded to the University of New Mexico.
