An End To The US HIV Epidemic? For Real?
Several months ago, the President delivered the “State of the Union Address”. To be clear, I had low expectations, really low! I think I may have choked on my popcorn when I heard the President proclaim he was committed to ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S.
Is it possible the beer I was drinking was making me hallucinate? Now, at full attention, I confirmed that he actually said what I thought he had said. Accepting the White House’s commitment to ending the HIV epidemic is a hard pill to swallow, particularly since he escalated his assault against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) the week after making this announcement. He has recently moved to roll-back health care services for transgender people, a highly vulnerable population at high risk for HIV infection.
