We know that the last week of the year is a time when many people are away from work, or are taking a break from new/social media. So—in case you missed them—we want to call your attention to two videos we believe lay vital groundwork for HIV and viral hepatitis-related work in 2015.

Dr. Ronald Valdiserri, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, Infectious Diseases, shares his thoughts on the year ahead in this video message.

Douglas Brooks, Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, reflects on the work we will need to do in 2015 to move closer to an AIDS-free generation.

We look forward to working with you in the coming year to improve our collective response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic—and we wish you and yours a Happy New Year!
