We all know that more testing is needed to end the HIV epidemic.
The Trump Administration stated in 2019 that it was committed to ending HIV by 2030. While the administration has promised increases in test funding, it has simultaneously tried to dismantle and defund programs that would help people get HIV tests.
“APLA Health supports increased funding for HIV programs, but that funding must not come at the expense of other critical health and safety net programs that serve people living with and affected by HIV both domestically and abroad,” said APLA Health CEO Craig E. Thompson. “The Administration’s plan to end the HIV epidemic will not succeed unless it ends attacks on the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion, and rescinds policies that are harmful to LGBTQ individuals, immigrants, and communities of color.”
Help APLA Health continue to Educate and advocate on behalf of those living with HIV by raising funds at AIDS Walk 2020. We can move forward to an AIDS-free future that doesn’t compromise the health of underserved communities.
