White House to Unveil National AIDS Strategy Tuesday

July 9, 2010

The White House is set to present its National AIDS Strategy, the product of a year and a half of work and meetings across the country, at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Early in his presidency, Barack Obama tasked Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, and Jeffrey Crowley, director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, with creating the plan. According to the White House, the National AIDS Strategy is a "roadmap for policymakers, partners in prevention, and the public on steps the United States must take to lower HIV incidence, get people living with HIV into care, and reduce HIV-related health disparities." Sebelius and Crowley are scheduled to introduce the strategy along with White House Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes and Dr. Howard Koh, HHS assistant secretary for health.
