On Monday, President Obama sent his Fiscal Year 2013 budget proposal to Congress.  The budget proposal clearly demonstrates his determination to help the Nation achieve the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) and renews the President’s commitment to ending the AIDS pandemic. To address HIV/AIDS in the U.S., the 2013 Budget:

  • Supports HIV/AIDS research.
  • Expands investments in prevention and care.
  • Funds cross-cutting innovative efforts for care and prevention.
  • Expands the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
  • Increases funding for HIV/AIDS prevention and service integration.
  • Modernizes the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program.
  • Fights the stigma of HIV/AIDS.

The President’s budget proposal advances our domestic HIV/AIDS agenda, strengthens programs, and supports our continuing efforts to achieve the National HIV/AIDS Strategy goals of reducing new HIV infections, increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV, and reducing HIV-related health disparities—bringing us closer to the goal of an AIDS-free generation.

  3. It is great to see the president involving NIH in their new budget proposal on the support for HIV/AIDS research. Thousands of people around the world are affected by HIV/AIDS and the government needs to focus more on developing safe and effective vaccines to combat this deadly disease. I also appreciate President Obama support the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program, to address housing needs among people living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
