"Only with increased resources and a cogent and well implemented National AIDS Strategy can we bring down HIV incidence, increase access to care, and reduce persistent racial and ethnic disparities in the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Marjorie Hill, Chief Executive Officer of Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC). "A comprehensive, outcomes-oriented Strategy is the best way to ensure provision of evidence-based programming, including needle-exchange programs and comprehensive sex education for youth."
