Trump’s HIV Plan Calls for Extra Resources for Cuyahoga County

President Trump announced a new plan to end the HIV epidemic in America by 2030 in his State of the Union address Tuesday.

Further details released Wednesday from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) show Cuyahoga County is one of 48 hotspot counties slated to receive extra resources under the new plan. According to the HHS factsheet, the 48 counties identified in the plan are areas with higher levels of HIV transmission. More than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses occur in those counties, as well as Washington, D.C., and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
