This strategy aims to treat HIV rapidly to achieve viral suppression. Assessing rapid ART, flexible clinic times, appointment schedules, and utility of surveillance and other data sources informed this pillar. In Shelby County in 2018, 70% of newly diagnosed individuals were linked to care within 1 month and 90% by 1 year. That same year, 62% of persons with diagnosed HIV were virally suppressed. The epidemiologic profile indicates that these rates are below the National HIV/ AIDS strategy goals.
