In February 2019, the President announced the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) in America Initiative. The initiative leverages data, tools and resources to reduce new HIV infections by 90-percent over the next 10 years. Marion County is one of the jurisdictions identified for which the State of Indiana will receive funds specific to this initiative. The current funding awarded to the Indiana Department of Health gave the county nearly one year to plan its response.
Dr. Kristina Box, Health Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Health, and Dr. Virginia A. Caine, Director of the Marion County Public Health Department, both made this one of their top priorities and spearheaded the Marion County response with technical assistance from Angela White, Senior Consultant and CEO of Johnson, Grossnickle & Associates (JGA), and Jason Grisell, President and CEO of The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis.
