Our Plan to End HIV Montgomery County

In February 2019, Montgomery County was named as one of the priority jurisdictions included in the federal initiative, Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America. This identification is based upon evidence that we, along with 57 other geographic focus areas, contribute 50% of the new HIV cases in the U.S. each year. As a result, we are building a plan to end HIV with the resources and support from this national initiative to reach the overarching goal of reducing new HIV infections by 90% by 2030.

We developed our plan to End HIV based on feedback from health care experts, community members living with or at-risk for HIV, and community leaders along with county epidemiology data. Do it for Montgomery County. Together we can End HIV.

Advisory Group

Montgomery County created an HIV Community Advisory Group to steer the plan drafting process and provide feedback on our draft plan. This group is comprised of community members living with HIV, public health experts, and community leaders. Group members will continue to serve the county by providing guidance and feedback about effective implementation of the plan.

Development Process

Community engagement was at the center of Montgomery County’s planning process. The county values robust input from community members as it strives to end the HIV epidemic. Continued robust engagement will allow the plan to be inclusive of multiple perspectives and ensure that the plan evolves to most effectively address the key barriers the Montgomery County community faces to ending the epidemic.

To ensure that the community was given opportunities to share their ideas, the county developed a community engagement strategy that sought to combine a multitude of voices with opportunities for deep insights and advice. The county’s engagement strategy and planning processes were constantly refined as the county received input from stakeholders. The EHE process has provided the impetus for the county to grow engagement efforts around HIV mitigation and sexual health awareness overall.
