Reflecting on U.S. Military's Contribution to Global AIDS Response

November 28, 2012

"As we look forward to World AIDS Day this year, I'm amazed at how far we've come in the battle against HIV and how effectively U.S. government agencies continue to work collaboratively towards an AIDS-free generation," Richard Shaffer, director of the U.S. Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program, writes in the AIDS.gov blog. "At the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP) we support HIV prevention programs around the world -- in 70 countries -- providing and expanding HIV prevention, care, and treatment support for active-duty military personnel, dependent family members and surrounding civilian communities," Shaffer notes and provides a recap of the program's work since its inception (11/27).
