AIDS United is shocked by President Trump’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget request released today. It threatens to roll back the progress in the fight against the domestic HIV epidemic.

AIDS United Denounces House Passage of the Disastrous and Deadly American Health Care Act

AIDS United denounces the House of Representatives for voting for the American Health Care Act (AHCA), a bill which would set back efforts to end the HIV epidemic in favor of a hefty tax break for the wealthy. If the bill is signed into law millions of Americans, including people living with HIV, may find themselves priced out of coverage and discriminated against for their age, gender or pre-existing conditions. The AHCA, if passed, would end the Medicaid expansion, end Medicaid as an entitlement program, relies on ineffective high risk pools and is expected to cause at least 24 million Americans to lose health coverage.

Today, AIDS United, NASTAD, the National Council of STD Directors, NMAC and The AIDS Institute join together to condemn the House of Representatives for passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA). If enacted, the AHCA would take away insurance coverage for millions of Americans and end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. This bill is disastrous for people living with or at risk for HIV and STDs.

This is an important development for maintaining our progress towards the national goals and priorities of reducing new HIV infections, increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for people living with HIV, and reducing HIV-related health disparities.
