Summary

President Donald Trump's administration has initially targeted about $250 million in new HIV/AIDS funding next year. Updated 02/09/2019 12:27 PM ESTPresident Donald Trump has vowed to end the nation’s HIV epidemic in a decade — but to do so, he’ll need to win over skeptics in the health community and on Capitol Hill, tamp down concerns from faith leaders and navigate hurdles inside his administration.The ambitious State of the Union pronouncement has been undermined by Trump’s own actions: He’s tried to cut nearly $1 billion in global HIV/AIDS funding, roll back protections for patients living with the disease and strike down health benefits for LGBTQ Americans. “While I’m encouraged that President Trump raised the domestic HIV epidemic in his speech, those of us who have worked on these issues for years — in the community and in Congress — are justifiably skeptical,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), co-chair and co-founder of the HIV/AIDS caucus and a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus.The strategy would require engaging with LGBTQ populations, along with undocumented immigrants and other groups.
