The National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) Performance Indicators

NHAS goals were developed to re-focus the nation’s response to the HIV epidemic in the United States and to undertake a more coordinated response. NHAS goals are evaluated using results from Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients to help provide a marker and assess progress towards achieving the goals.

Note that the NHAS goals are National targets and a compilation for work across the Federal government. The result shown applies only to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program in support of these goals.

Current degree of progression A striped orange bar indicates the current degree of progress toward the Goal.

Goal has been reached A solid green bar indicates that the Goal has been reached or exceeded.

Measure less than baseline A striped gray bar indicates that the 2013 measure is less than the Baseline value and that the Goal has not been achieved.
