Eeutive Summary 
On the two-year anniversary o the release o the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (the Strategy), the rstever comprehensive strategy or combatting the U.S. HIV/AIDS epidemic, we are seeing considerableprogress in meeting the our goals outlined in this landmark document:
 
reducing new HIV inections,
 
improving health outcomes or people living with HIV,
 
reducing HIV-related health disparities, and
 
achieving a more coordinated national response.Arguably, more has taken place to meaningully address domestic HIV in the past two years than atany other time during our more than 30-year battle with this disease. On the Federal level, the Strategyhas brought laser-like ocus to our eorts, allowing us to more eectively work together to achieve theStrategy’s goals. Much progress has been made towards creating a sustainable response to the epidemic,including realigning HIV prevention resources, increasing emphasis on evidence-based interventions,scaling up eorts to address stigma and discrimination, and building new partnerships across govern-ment and communities.We have also made tremendous progress in our understanding o how to prevent and treat HIV. Translating these advances into eective practices that improve and save lives is the priority o theStrategy. The Strategy emphasizes scaling up eective, evidence-based, sustainable interventions,while also providing localities the exibility to meet the distinct needs o their communities. Successulinterventions oten involve multiple key players working in a coordinated ashion and aligned withStrategy goals. The purpose o this report is to provide an overview o the progress made on the implementation o the Strategy and an update on relevant new activities taking place at the Federal level. Whether in newor existing initiatives, all actions are subject to the annual budget process, which requires balancingpriorities within available resources.Ongoing implementation includes making wise investments in our HIV prevention and care eorts.President Obama’s FY 2013 Budget proposed more than $22 billion or domestic HIV-specic programs,including $1 billion or AIDS drug assistance programs. This level o unding, which has been increasedeach year despite economically challenging times, reinorces the Federal commitment to addressing theHIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States. Given the varying levels o local and State unding, every eortmust be made to ensure that every dollar o HIV unding is used most eectively to save more lives andprevent new inections. In most places in the United States, this means directing resources to populationswhere HIV is most concentrated, such as among men who have sex with men and communities o color.
