    Experts and advocates in New York, a state hit hard in the AIDS epidemic, have drafted a blueprint for reducing new HIV infections and related deaths to the point of nearly ending them.

    The plan, requested last year by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and developed by a task force of 63 stakeholders, would expand steps that have already reduced deaths and newly diagnosed infections statewide to fractions of what they once were. At the same time, daily medications have suppressed the virus in about 44 percent of the 132,000 New Yorkers currently diagnosed with HIV, far outpacing the national rate of 25 percent.
