Higher Number of HIV Infections Must Translate Into Leadership & Action by U.S. Government
Date:7/31/2008

dential candidates to support policies and programs that are scientifically known to prevent HIV prevention, such as comprehensive sex education, HIV testing and counseling, and syringe exchange. Further, we call upon our leaders to commit the resources necessary at the National Institutes of Health to conduct behavioral research and to continue to develop such biomedical prevention approaches as microbicides and a vaccine. The government also needs to end programs and policies that are proven not to work, such as abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.

With the revelation that there are more people being infected with HIV in the U.S. each year means more people will be identified as living with HIV/AIDS. It also means they will need adequate healthcare and lifesaving medications to keep them healthy. Again, we must turn to our government to make sure the necessary resources are there for them.

The United States has made a remarkable, and much needed, commitment to global AIDS through the recent reauthorization and expansion of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). This demonstrated profound leadership on the part of our government. Addressing the HIV/AIDS epidemic at home in our own country requires the same leadership, action, and resolve by our leaders, and those aspiring to become our leaders. The clock is running out, there is no better time than right now to end AIDS in America."
