Every person has potential to achieve better health.

innovation and effective health promotion.

Diversity is a strength.
Stigma has no place in an epidemic response.
Ending the HIV epidemic requires a collective effort.
This Marion County plan sets a goal, aligned with the Federal Ending the HIV Epidemic goal, to reduce the number of new HIV infections in the United States by 75% by 2025, and then by at least 90% by 2030, for an estimated 2,000 total HIV infections averted in Marion County during the coming decade.
Funding for this project originates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA). Funding is allocated to the Indiana Department of Health and Marion County Public Health Department as the agencies responsible for securing and administering funds and confirming guidelines and plans for monitoring, evaluating, and reporting. In addition, other federal agencies including SAMHSA, have provided funding to support EHE efforts.
However, we cannot rely solely on federal funding. Philanthropic entities and members of the community must support these efforts for us to truly make an impact.
