HHS Official Looks Forward To World AIDS Day

“In just a few weeks, we will commemorate the 25th annual observance of World AIDS Day,” Ronald Valdiserri, deputy assistant secretary for health and infectious diseases and director of the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy at HHS, writes in the AIDS.gov blog, noting this year’s theme is “Shared Responsibility: Strengthening Results for an AIDS-Free Generation.” He notes, “Marking the day provides an opportunity for public and private partners to spread awareness about the status of the pandemic and encourage further progress in HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment everywhere around the world” (11/5).
