Abstract The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates more than 1.1 million adults and adolescents are living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States and 18% of persons living with HIV are not aware of their status. The epidemic continues to have a disproportionate impact on racial and ethnic minority populations--particularly African Americans and Hispanics--and on men who have sex with men (MSM) and injection drug users (IDUs), regardless of race or ethnicity. On July 13, 2010, the White House released the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). This ambitious plan is the nation's first-ever comprehensive coordinated HIV/AIDS roadmap with clear and measurable targets. It is also a new attempt to set clear priorities and provide leadership for all public and private stakeholders to align their efforts toward a common purpose. The goals of NHAS are to: (1) Reduce new HIV infections; (2) Increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV; and (3) Reduce HIV-related health disparities.
