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.”

    Just as justice exists in the absence of injustice and peace exists in the absence of war, liberty exists in the absence of coercion.

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
