Learn more about the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

One of the President’s top HIV/AIDS policy priorities is the development and implementation of a National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). There are three primary goals for the NHAS:

  • Reducing HIV incidence
  • Increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes
  • Reducing HIV-related health disparities

The Administration has maintained a commitment to developing the NHAS through a process that is inclusive of a broad range of perspectives and stakeholders, and the Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) has engaged public involvement via multiple channels.


Our vision for a national strategy is a concise plan for moving the country forward.  Predicated on building on what we are currently doing, it will identify a small number of high payoff action steps that need to be taken to achieve each of the President’s goals.  We envision the strategy being a document that provides a roadmap for policymakers and the general public.  We anticipate that the strategy will clearly describe the areas that require the most immediate change, the specific action steps that must be taken by the Federal Government and a variety of stakeholders, and specific targets for measuring our progress toward achieving the President’s goals.
