Statement From The National Conclave on HIV/AIDS Policy for Black Clergy
Date:10/10/2007

action, the National HIV/AIDS Elimination Act, is as follows:

-- The National Conclave on HIV/AIDS for Black Clergy calls upon the

President, Congress and Corporate America to declare the HIV/AIDS

crisis in the African American community a "public health emergency."

We call on the Secretary of Health and Human Services to use emergency

authority to redirect resources to address this emergency.

-- We believe the United States should develop a National AIDS Plan to

address the treatment, care, prevention, research and supportive

service needs of Americans living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS.

-- We believe that an integral component of any National AIDS Plan should

be targeted legislation that specifically addresses the

disproportionate impact of HIV/AIDS on the African Americans.

Therefore, we call on Congress and the Administration to endorse and

pass the National HIV/AIDS Elimination Act - legislation that will

mobilize action across departments of government and coordinate

programs and funding across the various agencies within the Department

of Health and Human Services. The Act will include measurable goals,

timetables and specific objectives designed to eliminate the HIV/AIDS

epidemic. As a part of the National AIDS Plan, the Elimination Act will

highlight and address the key structural drivers of the AIDS epidemic,

like poverty, low literacy, stigma, unemployment, incarceration, racial

disparities and other structural drivers of the epidemic in the United

States.

-- The Elimination Act will establish an institute to document the

historical treatment of African Americans and its impact on the issues

that have evolved and must be addressed. All agencies of the government

should be involved in making this a priority.

-- We endorse HR 1943
