New York state could end its AIDS epidemic by end of 2020, governor says | CNN

The governor’s office of New York announced that AIDS is at an all-time low, meaning the epidemic could be over by the end of next year. The “Ending the Epidemic” initiative put in place in 2014 helped undiagnosed patients receive treatment as well as prevented residents from contracting the virus. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, a drug that reduces the risk of contracting HIV by 99%, was also administered to nearly 32,000 New Yorkers. In order to finish ending the epidemic, New York will require health insurers to cover the cost of the drug without co-pay.
