To maximize reductions in HIV infections, High-Impact Prevention seeks to effectively distribute limited resources and combine prevention strategies in the smartest and most effective way possible for the populations and areas most affected by the HIV epidemic. Because of the good news that HIV incidence is stable and effective treatment exists to prevent illness and death, a growing number of persons—over 1.1 million—are living with HIV. Approximately one in five of those are not aware that they are infected. Continued growth in the number of people living with HIV—especially those unaware of their infection—ultimately may lead to more infections, if prevention, care and treatment are not targeted to those at greatest risk. At the same time, recent scientific breakthroughs in treatment, prevention, and monitoring of this disease have equipped us with an unprecedented number of effective tools to prevent infection.

This session of Grand Rounds explored the science behind High-Impact HIV Prevention. New directions in monitoring the burden of HIV and resource allocation modeling of HIV prevention interventions were presented as well as the White House's ongoing implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy to improve HIV prevention and care.
