Deputy Surgeon General Sylvia Trent-Adams talks about future work to be done in ending HIV transmission in the U.S. in the November 17, 2017 HIV.gov blog, which serves as an invitation to read Charting the Course to End HIV Transmission in the United States. The article was published in Public Health Reports and summarizes "the multifaceted approach we must pursue together" to both prevent transmission and treat people living with HIV. Trent-Adams was formerly Deputy Associate Administrator at HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau, which oversees the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.

"The collective wisdom we’ve gained from our evolving response since the 1980s, and the systems of care that we’ve built to help prevent, diagnose, and treat HIV infection, give us the knowledge, skills, tools, and infrastructure that are needed to chart a course to the end of HIV infections in the United States."
