In July 2010, President Obama released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (the Strategy) with a simple, but inspiring vision:

“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 socio‐economic circumstance, will have
unfettered access to high quality, life‐extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.”

The Strategy outlined three primary HIV health outcome goals: 1) reducing new HIV infections, 2) increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes for people living with HIV, and 3) reducing HIV‐related health disparities. To accomplish these goals, the President declared that we must undertake a more coordinated national response to the HIV epidemic. And that’s what the key Federal agencies involved in the fight against AIDS set out to do – working with state, tribal and local governments, businesses, faith communities, philanthropy, the scientific and medical communities, educational institutions, people living with HIV, and others
