TAG statement on the President’s FY 2020 budget proposal

Treatment Action Group (TAG) opposes the President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 budget proposal, which makes a mockery of the administration’s purported strategy to end AIDS in the United States over the next decade. TAG welcomes additional investments in HIV prevention and treatment towards eliminating HIV in the U.S. However, the federal budget’s defunding equally important areas across domestic and global health programs, social services, and research raises tremendous doubt about the administration’s commitment to end HIV. We are also concerned about the fate of related epidemics such as hepatitis C (HCV) and tuberculosis (TB).

The Berlin and London patients give important insights for HIV researchers, and a cure for HIV is an aspiration we continue to pursue. But the end of the epidemic - the reduction of new HIV infections and HIV-related deaths to very low levels - is within our reach even without a cure.
