Domestic HIV/AIDS Prevention and Research FY 2016
The FY 2016 budget request includes an increase of $12.6 million for domestic HIV/AIDS prevention. Part of this increase, $6.3 million, will support efforts to better link persons diagnosed and living with HIV to appropriate care, examine how new biomedical interventions are being used, and facilitate the development of state-wide plans for prevention, care and treatment, and other supportive services. The remaining $6.3 million will be used to improve HIV prevention activities targeted to school-aged youth. HIV/AIDS prevention investments will continue to align activities with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and promote high-impact prevention that focuses resources on effective, scalable, and sustainable prevention strategies. CDC will also help health department grantees leverage changes in the healthcare system by increasing their capacity to seek reimbursement for HIV preventive services that may be covered under health insurance policies.
