To summarize recent trends in knowledge of HIV status, care and viral suppression, and the status of implementation of relevant contextual requirements for the United States to achieve the 90-90-90 goals. Recently, the US government announced a plan to decrease HIV incidence by over 90% by 2030. Reaching this goal may require higher targets than 90-90-90.


The United States is on course to reach 90-90-90 goals in the near future, with 86% of persons with HIV aware of their infection, 74% of persons with diagnosed infection in care, and 83% of persons in care with viral suppression in 2016. Some high-burden subnational jurisdictions have already achieved these goals.


The United States is likely to reach 90-90-90 targets in the near future. However, to reduce HIV incidence by at least 90% by 2030, the United States will need to rapidly meet the new 95-95-95 targets and deploy a comprehensive strategy with novel approaches to testing, retaining persons with HIV on treatment, and preventing new infections with preexposure prophylaxis and comprehensive syringe services programs.
