In 2019, SFDPH received Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funding for a one-year accelerated planning process to develop a local plan to end the HIV epidemic. San Francisco added the goals of eliminating hepatitis C (HCV) and turning the curve on sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The funding was part of the national Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE, https://www.hiv.gov/federal-response/ending-the-hiv-epidemic/funding), a 10-year initiative that aims to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030.
Building on the city’s rich history of community and strategic planning, a broad group of providers, community based organizations, community members, SFDPH staff and its partners* developed the San Francisco Ending the HIV/HCV/STI Epidemics Plan (SF ETE Plan). Community engagement led the process and the SF HIV Community Planning Council (HCPC) provided a letter of concurrence on the plan. This is a living document, which will guide SFDPH’s implementation of HIV/HCV/STI services over the next 10 years.
SFDPH has received ongoing funding for the next 5-10 years to implement the strategies in the SF ETE plan.
