The White House's Update on the National HIV/AIDS Strategy

August 3, 2012

On July 2012, the White House released an update on the progress made on implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) as well as relevant new activities performed on the Federal level. Published two years ago, the original NHAS report is the first-ever comprehensive national framework on confronting HIV/AIDS domestically, stating explicit and measurable goals to be achieved by 2015.

The four goals outlined in the landmark document include:

  • Reducing HIV incidence
  • Improving health outcomes for people living with HIV
  • Reducing HIV-related health disparities
  • Achieving a more coordinated national response

The NHAS update report emphasizes the progress made in enhancing the: 1) sustainable response to the epidemic (i.e. realigning HIV prevention resources, building partnerships across government and communities, and more), 2) understanding of HIV prevention and treatment science and scaling up effective, evidence-based strategies, and 3) wise investments in HIV efforts, especially crucial in economically challenging times.
