  • Making Trumps Anti HIV Plan Work Is Not So Easy

The Act addresses discrimination against People Living with HIV at workplace, education setting, health setting and public places, they added.

"It will depend on Congress in terms of exactly where this plan goes".

Briefing reporters ahead of Trump's State of the Union speech, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar and senior public health officials said the campaign relies on fresh insights into where about half of new HIV cases occur - 48 out of some 3,000 U.S. counties, and Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and seven states with at-risk rural residents. "As a result, only about half of young people in the U.S. who are HIV-positive know their status, which is the entry point to lifesaving treatment that can also eliminate transmission".

Jacqueline is one of about 10,000 people in MS living with HIV.

'The tools are there, ' Azar said. Health officials have indicated numerous plan's initiatives could be implemented by expanding funding to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program, which provided clinical and support services to more than 530,000 uninsured and underserved individuals living with the virus in 2017. 'This is about execution'.

One recent advance has been the emergence of drugs like Truvada, which are used for both treating active infection and as "pre-exposure prophylaxis" (PrEP) - a preventive strategy for people deemed at high risk for infection.

February 7, 2019 marks the 20th year for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD), a national HIV testing and treatment community mobilization initiative to encourage testing and awareness.

Today's HIV treatments work so well they not only can give people with the AIDS virus a near-normal life expectancy, they offer a double whammy - making those patients less likely to infect other people.

Azar said new infections were "highly concentrated among men who have sex with men; minorities, especially African-Americans and American Indians and Alaska Natives; and those who live in the Southern United States".

The 48 counties HHS is focussing on are mainly metro areas.

Researchers noted that will require working with groups that often shun health services, including injectable drug users. "There's a lot that comes with being HIV positive".

HIV transmission levels also fell sharply, although thousands of new infections still occur in the United States each year. It will take effect for most retailers on July 1.

"My budget will ask Democrats and Republicans to make the needed commitment to eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years", Mr. Trump said during the address Tuesday night.

William McColl of AIDS United said the Trump administration's goal is 'very doable, ' based on now available technology and trends.

Redfield said the proposed initiative will focus on "four key strategies to meet the needs of communities with the highest HIV burden: diagnose new HIV infections; treat those with infection rapidly and effectively; protect people from being infected through access to comprehensive prevention and treatment, including medications that can prevent infection; and respond quickly to and stop new outbreaks".

'There was a recognition that we were facing a unique and historic moment where all the strands were coming together, ' said Azar. Advocates say President Donald Trump's goal is achievable, but it will take more than just an increased push for more medications.

Ultimately, the biggest question that emerges from this plan isn't whether or not it would be effective in providing care for people living with HIV and preventing new infections if properly implemented, but whether or not the HIV community can trust the Trump administration at its word. Even though it's a significant reduction from the disease's crisis years, progress has stalled.
