'AIDS is DC's Katrina' Ad Challenges Obama to Act on U.S. Epidemic
Date:6/2/2009

ines, the CDC recommended the testing of all people ages 13-64 in routine health care settings such as emergency units, community clinics, etc.; unfortunately, nearly three years later, these testing guidelines have not been widely implemented nationwide at the same time when our rate of new HIV infections has increased 40% from 40,000 new infections annually to 56,000.

"President Obama received plaudits from AHF and many others for appointing Dr. Thomas Frieden, the former Public Health Commissioner for New York City as his new head of the CDC," added AHF's Weinstein. "Demanding nationwide compliance with the CDC's own prudent, yet largely ignored HIV testing guidelines would be a great place for Dr. Frieden and the Obama Administration to start in addressing the domestic AIDS epidemic."

AHF has also produced a 30-second companion television spot using the same Katrina imagery. The spot urges President Obama to act forcefully on the AIDS epidemic both here and abroad. The ad, which consists of still photos -- including both the images from the bus shelter ad, will initially run on YouTube and other social marketing sites before running on television. The full script of the voice over ad follows:

Voice Over Announcer:

The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina symbolized George Bush's neglect and indifference of some of America's most vulnerable citizens.

Today in Washington, the rate of HIV has surged past 3% of the population, higher than in Lagos, Nigeria, ...

... yet President Obama has remained silent.

56,000 new U.S. HIV infections each year symbolize neglect and indifference.

President Obama, please be the change we can believe in on AIDS.
