White House Unveils HIV/AIDS Strategy; House Funds DC Program

The White House on Tuesday announced a National HIV/AIDS Strategy. The objective of the plan is to reduce new HIV infections and increased access to treatment, along with improved federal agency and local agency coordination. (The U.N.’s AIDS organization also released a report Tuesday on the global progress against the disease.)

Meanwhile, the primary fiscal 2015 funding measures for domestic  HIV/AIDS programs have yet to advance out of the House and Senate appropriations committees.

However, the House today is expected to complete voting on a Financial Services spending bill, which includes $5 million in funding for a District of Columbia HIV/AIDS program.

Appropriators  justified the spending in its committee report by noting  that 2.4 percent of the D.C. population has been diagnosed with HIV and that “the World Health Organization defines an HIV epidemic as ‘severe’ when the percent of infection among residents exceeds one percent.”
