HHS Meets With Lead Federal Departments About the NHAS
September 22, 2010
At the meeting, which Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health, and I co-chaired, more than a dozen representatives across the Federal government provided an overview of their current HIV/AIDS activities. One of the primary goals of the meeting was to discuss how to enhance systems and processes necessary for better coordination of HIV/AIDS work across the Federal government. Over the long-term, better coordination among and across departments allows us to support local efforts that will have a positive impact on people living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.
This group will meet on a regular basis to share information, raise issues, and develop strategies to achieve the important goals of the NHAS.
