After President Obama announced that Douglas M. Brooks would lead the Office of National AIDS Policy, HIV/AIDS organizations from around the country announced their support.
The Office of the Vice President, the White House Council on Women and Girls, and the White House Office of National AIDS Policy mark progress to date by the President’s Working Group on the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, and Gender-Related Health Disparities.
As we observe National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) 2014, we are reminded that African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV/AIDS in the United States.
An AIDS-free generation is within our reach, but it must be a shared responsibility. No one nation or entity can do it alone.
In recognition of World AIDS Day 2013, the Department of Justice reaffirms its commitment to eradicating stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV and AIDS across our country. This year’s observance offers us the chance to both reflect on the work we have done in the past year to protect the rights of people with HIV/AIDS and – due to the sad truth of continuing discrimination – the significant work to be done in the year ahead.

The return of the Conference to the United States marked a pivotal moment in the history of the fight against HIV/AIDS. America’s leadership globally, in science, and on HIV/AIDS policies is delivering results and saving living. The Obama Administration honored this historic event in many ways:
President Obama welcomed conference participants
Administration officials discussed their personal experiences with the epidemic
The Administration released an update on federal efforts to implement the National HIV/AIDS Strategy
ONAP hosted stakeholder forums focused on HIV in the African American community and HIV in the Latino/Hispanic community
Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports
ONAP funded two separate projects. The first produced three reports on HIV screening and access to care.
A second IOM project identified key indicators for measuring HIV outcomes and made recommendations for improving the monitoring of HIV care across data systems.
On March 30, 2012, President Obama issued a Presidential Memorandum creating a Federal working group to address the intersection of HIV/AID, violence against women and gender-related health disparities.
On World AIDS Day, December 1, 2011, the Administration announced a $50 million increase for HIV care and treatment through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
During the fall of 2011, ONAP hosted a series of issue-specific National HIV/AIDS Strategy implementation dialogues focused on incorporating prevention and care into HIV programs, building capacity within the HIV workforce, sustaining the community-based response to HIV and maximizing effectiveness in low prevalence jurisdictions.
In July of 2011, ONAP released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy: Implementation Update that highlighted the strategy at work throughout federal agencies, and progress making strategic new investments and needed policy changes.
In February 2011, ONAP released an Overview of Agency Operational Plans Report of the lead agencies' plans that outlines what Federal stakeholders are doing to implement the NHAS.
