Press Release

IAPAC Lauds National HIV/AIDS Strategy, Urges Adequate, Unwavering Funding, Accelerated Implementation

Statement by José M. Zuniga, President, International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care

July 13, 2010

The International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care (IAPAC) lauds the Obama Administration for launching a National HIV/AIDS Strategy that, in its strategic framework and if adequately funded, can help achieve significant progress in the US response to its HIV epidemic. Reducing the number of new HIV infections and increasing access to care, treatment, and support for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) have proven to be important components of any national response to HIV/AIDS. In coupling these two components with that of reducing HIV-related health disparities -- especially in relation to women, communities of color, and most at-risk populations (MARPs) -- the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, if implemented at an accelerated pace, is an effective prescription against a disease that has been allowed to run rampant from coast to coast for the past decade.
