Scale up of Combination Prevention important step in United States HIV policy
Friday, 11 November 2011
The Global Network of People living with HIV (GNP+) supports the United States Government’s call for a scale up of HIV prevention efforts, particularly the scale up of HIV treatment access, and the prevention of vertical transmission. GNP+ is encouraged that the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has made the objective of an ‘AIDS-Free generation’ a US policy priority and will help make this objective a reality.
“Having combination prevention as a policy priority is an important step,” says Dr. Kevin Moody, International Coordinator and CEO of GNP+. “However, this policy must be transformed into action. Every day we delay scaling-up prevention and treatment services, people in dire need are affected unnecessarily.”
