U.S. Must Maintain Commitment To Research Outlined In AIDS Blueprint
Noting the recent release of the “PEPFAR Blueprint: Creating an AIDS-free Generation” (.pdf), Kim Lufkin, communications officer at the Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC), writes in the organization’s “Breakthroughs” blog, “It’s commendable that the U.S. government is continuing its legacy as a leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS, as this blueprint indicates. It’s also encouraging that the blueprint focuses on developing new scientific breakthroughs in the fight against the disease.” She continues, “As the Obama administration enters its second term in the new year, leaders across the administration must ensure that the priorities outlined in this blueprint are fulfilled, particularly the U.S. commitment to research and new HIV/AIDS tools. We cannot reach an AIDS-free generation otherwise” (12/3).
