President Zack Statement Re: World AIDS Day
It has been 30 years since the first AIDS cases have been diagnosed in the United States. On World AIDS Day, we remember the more than half a million Americans who we have lost to this disease. We renew our commitment to overcoming the stigma and discrimination that persist, which blocks effective HIV prevention, testing and treatment; and we recommit to protecting the civil and human rights and the health information privacy of people with HIV/AIDS in the United States and throughout the world.
