In March I wrote to you about the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) Strategic Plan 2010-2015. One of the Center’s six cross-cutting goals is to promote and support Program Collaboration and Service Integration (PCSI). Through PCSI, we aim to increase service efficiency and maximize the health benefits that persons receive by accessing prevention services for HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB. We can achieve this by combining, streamlining, and enhancing prevention services; maximizing opportunities to screen, test, treat, or vaccinate those in need of these services; improving the health of populations negatively affected by multiple diseases; and enabling service providers to adapt to and keep pace with changes in disease epidemiology and new technologies.

April is STD Awareness Month, a time when we draw attention to the continuing burden of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in our nation and remind ourselves of the best ways to maintain and improve our sexual health. This is an annual observance, a way of re-dedicating ourselves to the mission of STD prevention and increasing public dialogue about the ways to prevent, test for, and treat STDs.

What a great National HIV Testing Day we just had! There is definitely renewed energy around efforts to curb HIV/AIDS, and it is exciting to see our colleagues and partners continuing to push prevention and early treatment. Last week, I was on Capitol Hill for a press conference for National HIV Testing Day. It was wonderful to see so many esteemed policy, advocacy, and public health leaders serving as guest speakers, including Jeff Crowley, Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, and Frank Oldham, Jr., from the National Association of People with AIDS.

We are here today and we know that we have to work together to overcome this disease . . . I think I can speak for all of us to say that we are ready to bring the full force as a movement to the task of the Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative.
