Stakeholders shared more input on the next iterations of the national HIV and viral hepatitis strategies and the development of a federal sexually transmitted disease (STD) plan during the CDC’s National HIV Prevention Conference in Atlanta in March. This was the 18th listening session convened to gather input on the next iterations of the national HIV and viral hepatitis strategies.
Leaders from CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention as well its Divisions of HIV/AIDS Prevention, Viral Hepatitis, and STD Prevention, HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau, and the HHS Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy engaged with more than 80 stakeholders who attended. We received oral and written comments from a variety of individuals who shared recommendations, concerns, and questions about a broad variety of topics. Highlighted below are cross-cutting comments as well as input on each of the three topics currently under consideration.
We are grateful for the thoughtful input received from the diverse audience. We heard suggestions from people living with HIV, health care providers, health department leaders, advocates, representatives of community-based organizations, and more. The stakeholders who offered input hailed from Puerto Rico to Alaska, and many communities in between.
In collaboration with our federal partners, we are now analyzing the input collected at all of the listening sessions and that we received in response to the Request for Information published in the Federal Register earlier this year. This input will inform the development of the next iterations of the national HIV and viral hepatitis strategies and the new federal STD plan.
