The Ending the HIV Epidemic Advisory Council was created by Mayor David Briley's Executive Order 009 in May 2019 to implement the Ending the HIV Epidemic community plan. This body is appointed by the Mayor and is charged with serving in an advisory capacity to the Administration.
The plan aims to achieve the following six goals by 2024:
- Ensure that 90% of Nashville Residents Living with HIV Know Their Serostatus
- Decrease by Two-Thirds the Number of Nashville Residents with Newly Acquired HIV
- Link 90% of Those Diagnosed with HIV to Care Within One Month of Diagnosis
- Engage 90% of People Diagnosed with HIV in Care
- Ensure that 90% of Those Engaged in Care Will Achieve Viral Suppression
- Eliminate Disparities in HIV Outcomes (goals will be achieved among all populations, requiring greater focus on populations disproportionately impacted by HIV and/or unequally represented among health outcomes)
The Advisory Council shall be composed of a minimum of thirteen (13) and a maximum of twenty-five (25) members appointed by the Mayor.
