Advocates Push for Greater Awareness of HIV/AIDS
Date:11/30/2011

access to care and improve outcomes; reduce HIV health disparities and improve government coordination.

"I was excited to hear that the Well Project was creating this awareness month because the federal government can't do it alone," Crowley said. "This is not a federal strategy, it's a national strategy, so we need all of our stakeholders to come together."

"Private sector help is even more important today as local and state and federal budgets are being cut," Mark Ishaug, president and CEO of AIDS United, said at the news conference. "Cuts in many states are draconian. HIV prevention programs across America have been eliminated; AIDS drug assistant programs have long waiting lists; support services are simply disappearing," he said.

According to the CDC report, in 2010 only 9.6 percent of adult Americans had been tested for HIV in the past year. Testing levels varied by state, ranging from 4.9 percent to 29.8 percent.

Of the more than 900,000 people who know they have HIV, about 77 percent were linked to care and 51 percent were getting continuing treatment.

In addition, 45 percent had prevention counseling and 89 percent were taking antiretroviral medications. Of these, the virus was suppressed in 77 percent, meaning the virus was suppressed in about 28 percent of all Americans with HIV, according to the report.

Speaking at the news conference Phill Wilson, founder and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute, said that "30 years is enough, and we have the tools to end the AIDS epidemic in America."
