White House to Begin HIV/AIDS Community Discussion Forums

August 24, 2009

The White House has announced that it will begin holding "a series of community discussions on HIV and AIDS throughout the country," the Associated Press/Washington Post reports (8/21).

The community forums, called the National HIV/AIDS Community Discussions, "are intended to provide a public venue for input on a national strategy, according to a news release," the Desert Sun (Palm Springs, Calif.) reports. President Barack Obama said in a statement, "HIV remains a serious challenge to the American people and I am committed to developing an effective National HIV/AIDS Strategy" (Brambila, 8/22).

"The first discussion will be Tuesday in Atlanta in conjunction with the 2009 National HIV Prevention Conference. Others will follow in Washington, New York, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Houston, Albuquerque, N.M., Jackson, Miss., Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis, Columbia, S.C. ; Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the White House said" (Rhee, "Political Intelligence," Boston Globe, 8/21).
