The 12 Cities Project

By Miguel Gomez

February 28, 2011

This article was cross-posted from the AIDS.gov blog.

An important component of the HHS National HIV/AIDS Strategy Operational Plan is what is known as "the 12 Cities Project." The HHS-wide project supports and accelerates comprehensive HIV/AIDS planning and cross-agency response in the 12 U.S. jurisdictions that bear the highest AIDS burden in the country.

We have touched on the project in some prior posts, but I recently spoke to Dr. Ronald Valdiserri, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Infectious Diseases, to learn more about the project and its importance for helping the nation achieve the Strategy's goals. View Dr. Valdiserri's video below.



We have also prepared an overview (PDF) of the 12 Cities Project. 

While this initiative represents is a significant component of the HHS NHAS Operational Plan, it is by no means the only activity HHS is undertaking to pursue the Strategy's goals. To be sure, HHS is actively pursuing more than 175 actions specified in the first NHAS Federal Implementation Plan plus many additional ones set forth in its Operational Plan.

In the coming weeks and months the AIDS.gov blog will be featuring updates about how all of these activities, including the 12 Cities Project, are unfolding.
