Designing a National AIDS Strategy

Posted Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

The fight against HIV/AIDS has long since fallen out of the headlines, so it is surprising to learn that almost 30 years since the first AIDS diagnosis, the U.S. still doesn't have a nationwide AIDS strategy. As part of a move to rectify that, the Obama administration is holding a series of town hall meetings across the country, including one in Cleveland this week. Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop and representatives from the local HIV/AIDS community to talk about what a national plan to fight HIV would actually include and how it would change the fight here in Northeast Ohio.

With respect to education it is my opinion that church and religions views inhibit the transfer of information that children need in high school for their sexual health.
