Imagine an Oregon where…
We end new HIV infections.
Everyone at risk for HIV is treated.
Everyone with HIV is healthy.
Can you imagine it?
End HIV Oregon.
Everyone has an HIV status and all Oregonians need to know theirs. It’s as easy as ever to get tested for HIV. Confidential HIV testing is available throughout Oregon. There are rapid tests which give results within 20 minutes and even a rapid home HIV testing kit that can be bought in drug stores and pharmacies. You can also ask your doctor for a confidential HIV test as part of a routine medical visit. Many insurance plans cover the cost of HIV testing.
100% of Oregonians get tested for HIV.
35% of adult Oregonians have ever been tested.
Zero new HIV infections.
New HIV infections are now 220-240 per year.
Since 6 out of 10 Oregonians have never been tested, some Oregonians have HIV but don't know it.
People who know they have HIV are less likely to spread it to others.
People who know they have HIV can start life-saving treatment, protecting their health and reducing their risk of passing on HIV to others.
There are a variety of HIV prevention tools out there that we know work! Whether it's condoms and lubricant, safer sex and prevention education, syringe exchange, PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis), or testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), Oregonians have a variety of tools to help them prevent HIV. It’s an exciting time because we also have new tools to prevent HIV, including PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), a daily pill to prevent infection.
100% of Oregonians at high-risk of infection have access to PrEP, a daily pill to prevent HIV
Because PrEP is a new tool, we don’t yet know how many people need it, how many are on it, or how many doctors prescribe it. We are collecting this information and working on initiatives to get PrEP to Oregonians who need it.
Proven tools like use of condoms and lubricant have helped maintain low levels of new HIV infection in Oregon.
Syringe exchange keeps people who use Injection drugs safe from diseases like HIV and Hepatitis C.
HIV medicines can reduce a person’s chance of spreading HIV by up to 96%.
Taking PEP can help prevent HIV after one-time potential exposures. New tools, like PrEP, a daily pill to prevent infection, can help us end new infections; when taken consistently, PrEP can reduce the risk of becoming HIV infected by more than 90%.
HIV does not have to be the deadly disease it was in the 1980s. Today Oregonians with HIV are living longer, healthier lives with the help of HIV medications. Plus, effective HIV treatment can reduce transmission of the virus by up to 96%. For people who do learn they have HIV, there are a number of free resources available to help them finding a medical provider and get the help, support, and medications they need.
100% of Oregonians diagnosed with HIV are in medical care within 30 days.
69% of Oregonians diagnosed with HIV are in medical care in 30 days.
100% of Oregonians taking HIV medications achieve the health goal of being virally suppressed. This means that the amount of virus in a person’s body is greatly reduced.
68% of Oregonians taking HIV medications are virally suppressed.
With HIV treatments, people are living longer, healthy lives.
HIV treatments works to lower the amount of the virus in the blood and keep the immune system strong. Taking medications to treat HIV correctly and consistently increases the likelihood of viral suppression. Programs like Oregon Reminders can help people to remember to take their HIV medications every day.
HIV treatment can reduce the risk of transmission by up to 96%. If all Oregonians who know they are HIV infected were virally suppressed, we could prevent over two-thirds of new HIV infections.
Effective HIV treatment allows pregnant women with HIV to give birth to babies that are HIV free.

End HIV Oregon is Oregon’s strategy to end new HIV infections in our state. It is a collaborative effort between the Oregon Health Authority, the statewide Integrated HIV/Viral Hepatitis/STD Planning Group (IPG) including people living with HIV and at risk of HIV infection, and a variety of public and private agencies and community groups across our state.
