White House to Unveil National AIDS Strategy Tuesday


After a year and a half of meetings and discussions, the White House will debut its national HIV/AIDS strategy on Tuesday.

The White House describes the strategy as a "roadmap for policymakers, partners in prevention, and the public on steps the United States must take to lower HIV incidence, get people living with HIV into care, and reduce HIV-related health disparities."

The plan will be described on Tuesday at 2 p.m. by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, White House Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes, Office of National AIDS Policy Director Jeffrey Crowley and HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Howard Koh.

Shortly after taking office, President Barack Obama tasked Crowley and Sebelius will developing a HIV strategy -- they've since conducted dozens of meetings on issues ranging from minority infection rates to public/private partnerships in research and financing.
