The Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS can speed up the path to the end of AIDS, or it can create more roadblocks. And that's why it still matters -- regardless who the members are, Kenyon Farrow writes.

The HIV community is urging immediate action and speaking out against this attack on health care, which also threatens the dignity and lives of millions of people.
