Harold implementation plan

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) Federal Implementation Plan (the Implementation Plan) was released on Friday, August 26th.

Watch HIV.gov’s latest FYI video below with Harold Phillips, the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, to hear his remarks about the Implementation Plan and how it helps move the nation toward ending the HIV epidemic.

 

The Implementation Plan captures the major actions and activities that various federal agencies will undertake through the year 2025 to achieve the goals and objectives outlined in the NHAS, which was released on World AIDS Day 2021. “This [Implementation] Plan is designed in a way that I hope it really lets the community and others see how the Federal Government plans to help us reach and achieve our HIV goals,” said Mr. Phillips. Keeping in mind that the NHAS is a whole-of-society approach and response to the HIV epidemic in the United States, the Plan also includes calling non-federal stakeholders to action to end the epidemic.

“I hope that this document inspires our private sector, our academic institutions, [and] our faith-based partners to really understand what the Federal Government plans to do […] The Implementation Plan is a companion document to the [NHAS]. So, [we have] the framework, and then we [have] federal action, now we need the rest of society to come together and activate and accelerate like President Biden called us to do to end the HIV epidemic.”
