CDC Plans on-the-Ground 'HIV Elimination Teams' for Trump Plan

Donald Trump delivering the State of the Union address

Over 1 million Americans are now living with HIV.

"The administration's plan will deploy the people and key prevention and treatment strategies needed to reduce new HIV infections by 75 percent over the next 5 years, with the hope of a 90 percent reduction within 10 years", Redfield said.

The details around funding for the president's ending the epidemic plan are still murky, but the overall shape of what the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other federal agencies are planning has already started coming into focus.

Trump also piggybacked on a 2010 HIV strategy outlined by then President Barack Obama that focused on lowering the infection rate and increasing access to medical care. They took the idea to Trump, who 'is personally invested in this, ' said Azar.

The first reported case of AIDS in the United States was in 1981. For years, the tireless efforts of HIV advocates to end the HIV epidemic in the United States had been ignored by broad swaths of the political establishment in Washington, with only a handful of doggedly determined champions in Congress to make sure that funding for HIV programming wasn't cut and to fight back against the discrimination, criminalization, and stigmatization of people living with HIV. Hardy said any meaningful policy to lower HIV infections would have to target interventions that expand care for LGBTQ individuals since gay and bisexual men account for almost 70% of new HIV infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

AIDS has no cure, but daily doses of antiretroviral medications have allowed victims to live relatively long and healthy lives. This is not an accident, but the result of the hard work of HIV advocates who saw an opportunity to influence the designs of those in power in a way that would benefit people living with HIV.

On Tuesday night, along with his consistent banter about immigration and the questionable achievements of his two years in office, Trump unleashed the surprise of his 82-minute speech. Their technique is predicated on classes learned by way of worldwide HIV programmes, supported by teams together with the Global Fund to Battle AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in Geneva, Switzerland, and the USA authorities' initiative PEPFAR.

Anti-AIDS activists said they're ready to work with the White House, but wary because of Trump's previous efforts to slash Medicaid health care for low-income people.

The office's page within the White House's official website showed a 404 error: That page can not be found.

Trump, who campaigned on a balanced budget and reducing federal expenditures, apparently on Tuesday added another big expense to the deficit. About a third of new HIV infections happen in people 15 to 25 years old, according to the World Health Organization.

Mr. Trump also let the Office of National AIDS Policy, an executive branch task force, languish for almost two years after failing to appoint a director and terminating all the members of the council.

"If we are going to end HIV transmissions in the USA, we need research to help understand how to effectively deliver the right interventions to the right communities at the right time", he said.

"The real proof will be in the President's FY 2020 budget request next month", it ended.

"It will depend on Congress in terms of exactly where this plan goes. Until now, his words have worked at nearly every turn to fuel HIV's spread", Hamblin said.

The Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS did not meet at all in 2018, according to a report released by the Fenway Institute, an LGBTQ health organization.
