White House to release national AIDS strategy Tuesday

The White House announced today that the Obama administration’s long-awaited national HIV/AIDS strategy will be unveiled Tuesday, July 13.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (pictured at right) will join other top administration officials in the announcement, according to a news release sent by the White House. Also expected to be on hand are Melody Barnes, domestic policy adviser; Jeffrey Crowley, national AIDS policy director; and Dr. Howard Koh, HHS assistant secretary for health.

The White House press release said that the national HIV/AIDS strategy, or NHAS, is a comprehensive plan focused on 1) reducing the number of people who become infected with HIV, 2) increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes for people living with HIV, and 3) reducing HIV-related health disparities.

Next week’s release of the AIDS strategy comes just ahead of the 18th International AIDS Conference in Vienna, Austria, which begins July 18. The Bay Area Reporter will have coverage of the NHAS release in its July 15 issue.
