In fact, HIV incidence has declined each year since we started the End the Epidemic campaign and has declined by a total of 38 percent over that timeframe. As we move forward, will continue to support the lifesaving work of HIV/AIDS service providers.”

December 1, 2020 – Albany, NY – On World AIDS Day, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that based on the most recent data from 2019, New York State has “bent the curve” on the HIV epidemic, a primary goal of the Ending the Epidemic initiative. According to the new data, the estimated number of new infections, or HIV incidences that occurred statewide in 2019, fell to an all-time low of 1,700 cases. HIV incidence has declined each year since the start of ETE, with a 38 percent decrease over that time frame. New confirmed HIV diagnoses in 2019 also reached an all-time low of 2,377 — a four percent drop from 2018 and a 31 percent drop since the start of ETE. In recognition of World AIDS Day, Governor Cuomo has also directed state landmarks to be lit red throughout the evening. (Mike Groll/Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo)
