U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy Release Is Imminent

By Olivia Ford

June 17, 2010

Finally, the release of the U.S.'s first-ever national HIV/AIDS strategy is almost upon us. "We're no longer talking months; we're talking weeks," said U.S. Office of National AIDS Policy director Jeffrey Crowley in a conference call with community members on June 17. Organizations across the U.S. are circling the wagons, preparing to alert their constituencies about the strategy upon its release.

Since back in the days when ONAP convened a dozen-plus open meetings in different cities and communities across the U.S., in order to document what people had to say about what should be included in the nation's first national HIV/AIDS strategy, they've attempted to keep the community abreast of what they're up to as far as developing the strategy: updating their own blog and that of; releasing a shiny report, including photos, on the results of the meetings; and hosting conference calls that even those who have limited access to the Internet have the option of taking part in.

Keep your eye on for updates on the national HIV/AIDS strategy's historic release!

Hard to believe US looking at their first national HIV/AIDS strategy. I can't understand why so long but a good moment. We have been lucky in Canada that way. Have never paid for a drug to save my life. The struggle is hard enough with out the burden of cost. Cheers to you all.

I was so proud to be part of this years AIDSWatch in DC where one of the things we discussed with our leaders and asked them to support is the National AIDS Strategy. However I would like to see this become a HUMAN issue rather than a "community" issue. It is very hard to bring people into supporting something when the "segregation" of "community" comes before "humanity".

HIV and AIDS are HUMAN conditions and they do not reside in any "community"

HUMANITY before community
