Abstract Body: 

Science, community activism, and political will converge in the domestic epicenter of HIV/AIDS to generate a 'Blueprint' to End the Epidemic (EtE) in New York City (NYC) and State. Through a process of evaluating strategies and identifying and leveraging resources, NYC continues to progress toward the achievable goal of decreasing the rate of new HIV infections to below epidemic levels. Increasing awareness of status, improving viral load suppression, magnifying the use of HIV medications for prevention, and supporting the health of often marginalized populations are the pillars of the NYC strategy to end HIV by making NYC 'status neutral.'
