The Obama Administration, working with other stakeholders, has sought to re-energize and re-focus the national response to the domestic HIV epidemic. Fulfilling a commitment made in the 2008 presidential campaign, the President released a National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States (Strategy) in July 2010, marking the first attempt to align the efforts of all domestic stakeholders around a core set of high-impact action items. The Strategy is an evidence-based roadmap for targeting resources to the communities most heavily impacted by the epidemic, and using science to identify and scale-up the most effective prevention and treatment interventions. The goals of the Strategy are to reduce the number of new HIV infections, increase access to care, and reduce HIV-related health disparities.
The O’Neill Institute is committed to supporting the effective implementation of the Strategy through policy and legal analysis and working with federal, state, and local policymakers, people living with HIV, and other stakeholders.
