Help Develop a National AIDS Strategy

(Scroll down to comment.)

The Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) in the White House is drafting a national AIDS strategy, which will be released in 2010.

The three major goals of the strategy are: reducing HIV incidence; increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes; and reducing HIV-related health disparities.

ONAP is hosting HIV/AIDS Community Discussions (a.k.a. town halls) nationwide to seek input from people living with and affected by the virus in the creation of the strategy.

Here's the schedule:

Atlanta, GA — Tuesday, August 25
Washington, DC — Wednesday, September 21
Minneapolis, MN — Friday, Oct. 2
Albuquerque, NM — Friday, Oct. 9
Houston, TX — Saturday, Oct. 10
San Francisco, CA — Friday, Oct. 16
Los Angeles, CA — Sunday, Oct. 18
Columbia, SC — Monday, Oct. 26
Oakland, CA — Sunday, Nov. 1
Virgin Islands — Monday, Nov. 9
Jackson, MS — Monday, Nov. 16
Ft. Lauderdale, FL — Friday, Nov. 20
New York City, NY — Friday, Dec. 4
Puerto Rico — Monday, Dec. 14

ONAP solicited comments from the public online until Monday, November 23, and via email until Monday, December 7.

However, we still encourage you to leave your comments below. We will deliver them to Jeff Crowley, ONAP's director.

Thank you in advance for letting us know your thoughts!
