Replacing Obamacare: A Look At Competing Conservative Health Care Proposals

During the 6 years since it was signed into law, House Republicans have voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act more than 60 times. Now that the GOP will have control of The White House and both chambers of Congress in 2017, they're certainly going to do something to transform America's health care laws. The question is, what? We can't know for sure, but existing plans from Republican leadership can provide a glimpse of what might be coming down the road.

Reflections on World AIDS Day 2016

Today, another World AIDS Day will come and go, just like the many before it. While we are 35 years into this epidemic – perhaps because we are 35 years into this epidemic – it is more important than ever to take the time to observe World AIDS Day, and reflect on what it truly means.

Revolutionary Love, A Daily Practice, A Movement of Solidarity: The Many Meanings of Harm Reduction

Harm reduction work is happening every day in communities across the world. Every two years, hundreds of these community leaders come together to address the most urgent issues facing the harm reduction movement at the National Harm Reduction Conference. This year, I was incredibly lucky to attend the conference in San Diego to learn more about harm reduction in its many forms—as a theory, a practice, a community, and a movement.

As Lame Duck Budget Negotiations Move Forward, HIV Funding Hangs In The Balance

As the attentions of most media outlets and of the general public remain fixed on the drama surrounding the formation of President-elect Trump's cabinet, Congress once again finds itself tackling another self-imposed budget crisis. The continuing resolution that was passed to keep the Federal government funded in September is set to expire on December 9th, which means the fate of HIV funding for Fiscal Year 2017 has become embroiled in a larger political battle over how soon the Trump administration will be able to put its stamp on the nation's budget. HIV/AIDS advocates are pushing hard for a catch-all omnibus bill that would prevent any cuts to domestic HIV programs, but the Trump administration & House Republicans have other ideas.

HIV Advocates Face Challenges New & Old After Stunning US Elections

As HIV advocates, many of us went into Tuesday's election laboring under the belief that they would soon be dealing with a new administration led by a woman who had a track record of working to end the HIV epidemic for more than 20 years. Instead, we are faced with a President-elect who has campaigned on the promise of repealing the Affordable Care Act and had no HIV/AIDS policy as part of his campaign. The coming years will most assuredly be tough ones, but experience tells us that we have the strength to persevere through them.

Why More is At Stake This Election Than You Think

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you will likely already know that Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day across the United States. To say that this election cycle has been been hard to watch would be an understatement. The news cycle has been primarily focused on the general public’s disdain towards the candidates and the nasty attacks and harmful rhetoric that has been on display for the world to see (and hear). While having to select the next leader of the free world in these conditions may seem to be disheartening for some, we still need to participate in the political process because too much is at stake.

Experts Support Use of PrEP Despite New HIV Infection Reported in Adherent PrEP User

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) has been shown to be a very effective strategy for preventing the transmission of HIV. However, in its current form involving the prophylactic use of Truvada, it is not 100% effective. With the recent announcement of a second instance of HIV transmission to someone who was adherent to PrEP, debate over the best way to address these very rare, but serious lapses in Truvada's effectiveness has increased.
