Estimate of Annual HIV Incidence Increases Significantly; New Estimate Will Show Need For a National AIDS Strategy
Date:8/1/2008

men. Adjusted for inflation, federal funding for HIV prevention has decreased since 2001. Federal law blocks federal funding for syringe exchange programs, which the scientific literature has demonstrated clearly as an effective HIV prevention tool. Support for comprehensive sex education that helps keep young people healthy is neglected while the current administration supports pouring millions of dollars into abstinence-only programs that have been proven to be ineffective.

"This is not just another set of statistics. There are people behind these numbers. People are becoming infected with a disease that is preventable. We know how to prevent HIV, but we have been fighting this epidemic with one hand tied behind our back, reflecting a disturbing dismissal of HIV prevention as a public health priority," Johnson said. "The new, higher estimate is yet one more wake-up call to our national leaders that they need to do more, starting with developing and implementing a real national AIDS strategy," Johnson noted.

Editor's note 1: AIDS Action's nationally recognized HIV/AIDS expert Ronald Johnson, Deputy Executive Director, will be available for interviews in Mexico City (at the International AIDS Conference), and Rebecca Haag, Executive Director, will be available stateside through the contact listed.

Editor's note 2: AIDS Action will update this release with figures when the embargo period ends.

AIDS Action strives to end the HIV epidemic by advancing public policies that prevent new infections, provide care for people living with HIV, and support the search for a cure. AIDS Action serves as the national voice for AIDS service organizations, health departments, and a diverse network of community-based organizations across the country that provide services for people living with or affected by HIV infection.
