We Want to Hear Your Comments About the National HIV/AIDS Strategy

This article was cross-posted from the AIDS.gov blog. Dr. Ron Valdiserri is Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Infectious Diseases, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The Federal Implementation Plan for the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) requires the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health to support the implementation of the Strategy by forging collaborations across HHS and with other Federal departments and by coordinating Federal efforts with States.

To help HHS do that job effectively, I want to ask the readers of this blog the following questions:

  1. What do you think are the most important parts of the NHAS and the Implementation Plan? What parts most impact the work you do?
  2. Can you suggest ways that the Federal government could do a better job of explaining how the Federal budget is used to support domestic (i.e., U.S. only) HIV/AIDS activities?
  3. What steps can HHS take to support and promote the integration of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services at the local level?

Please feel free to share any other thoughts you have about how we can work together to achieve the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

A great deal of all prescription drugs are seeing a hike in price and the decline, in my opinion, is probably very far off. I was searching online for a more cost effective method to get access to my prescription drugs and this place http://canadapharmacyrx.us/?productid=23 has much cheaper options and they are identical in effective ingredient values as the originals.Great strides are being made towards the fight against HIV. But, do we truly have 30 years that it typically takes to develop such drugs and then release them into the open market at prices so high that very few are able to attain the treatment?

We need to exercise solidarity and demand to know why a generic is so transparent and cost-effective and why brand name drugs do not even need to consider doing the same.
