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.
