 NHAS - THE NATIONAL HIV/AIDS STRATEGY

“When one of our fellow citizens becomes infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) every nine-and-a-half minutes, the epidemic affects all Americans. It has been nearly thirty years since the first cases of HIV garnered the world’s attention. Without treatment, the virus slowly debilitates a person’s immune system until they succumb to illness. The epidemic has claimed the lives of nearly 600,000 Americans and affects many more. Our Nation is at a crossroads. We have the knowledge and tools needed to slow the spread of HIV infection and improve the health of people living with HIV.” 


- President Obama

President Obama committed to developing a National HIV/AIDS Strategy with three primary goals:

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.

Success will require the commitment of all parts of society, including State, tribal and local governments, businesses, faith communities, philanthropy, the scientific and medical communities, educational institutions, people living with HIV, and others.

The vision for the National HIV/AIDS Strategy is simple: “The United States will become a place where new HIV infections are rare and when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or socioeconomic circumstance, will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.”
