I wanted to take a minute today to introduce you to the new White House Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) webpage
. We hope you will visit here often for updates on our progress in developing a National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) and in helping the President to advance his HIV-related policy agenda. You can also use this page to provide feedback regarding the NHAS and other HIV/AIDS issues.
From this page, you can use the tabs to navigate to other pages to learn more about the ONAP team, our plans for developing the NHAS, how to submit comments and public input for the NHAS, and how to contact us.
Every nine-and-a-half minutes, someone in the United States becomes infected with HIV…resulting in more than 56,000 new infections each year. We also have more than 1.2 million people in this country who are living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom require services and support. Clearly, we continue to face a very serious public health challenge in responding to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic. Working together, I am confident that we can stop the spread of HIV and ensure that those affected get the care and support they need.
Jeffrey S. Crowley is the Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy
