HIV Recommendations for the Biden-Harris Administration: AIDS United and Act Now: End AIDS Coalition

Jan 06, 2021 | Julia Zigman

AIDS United and the Act Now: End AIDS (ANEA) Coalition sent a memo to the incoming administration outlining the commitments necessary for ending the HIV epidemic in the United States while simultaneously addressing the intersecting STI, viral hepatitis and overdose syndemics.

The memo states: “The biomedical outcomes laid out in the nation’s current Ending the HIV Epidemic Initiative (EHE) can only be achieved through the simultaneous prioritization and protection of the health and rights of people living with HIV (PLHIV) and vulnerable to the virus. The EHE Initiative creates a framework to end HIV in this country; its next iteration needs to work in compliment to advocacy for universal health coverage, racial health equity, housing assistance, food security, and must address all social determinants of health.”
