UPDATE:  Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign.  PrEP4All, AVAC, HIVMA, and the PrEP in Black America coalition celebrate Congress’ decision to both fund domestic HIV programs at the same level as last year and to lift up calls for a National PrEP Program. The final 2024 Health and Human Services bill rejects extreme cuts to HIV funding proposed by House Republicans in July of last year. The organizations have led the charge on the #SaveHIVFunding campaign following efforts to eliminate $767M in critical funds to end HIV as an epidemic. We additionally thank House and Senate LHHS Appropriations Subcommittee leaders Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Representatives Robert Aderholt (R-AL) and Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) for working to ensure an effective and ultimately bipartisan outcome.


The House has proposed over $767M in cuts to domestic HIV programs and eliminated funding specifically designated for the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative. While advocates have been successful in shoring up bipartisan support in the Senate to oppose these cuts, it is vital that we continue to unite and insist that any proposal to slash global or domestic HIV funding is categorically unacceptable.

US funding has resulted in treatment access for at least half a million Americans living with HIV who receive support annually. Domestic HIV prevention efforts have accelerated with the establishment of the first National HIV/AIDS Strategy in 2010 and the announcement of the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative in 2019, resulting in a 16% reduction in new HIV infections since 2017 in America’s most highly affected jurisdictions. If we maintain and expand HIV funding, we can finally bring the epidemic under control for all American communities.

In contrast, a $767M loss to domestic funding would put all existing progress at risk. Every new HIV infection in the US creates $501,000 in lifetime healthcare costs. An increase of just 2,000 new infections in the US will add billions to our national debt and obliterate any savings House appropriators seek to achieve. Five thousand Americans still die from AIDS-related causes each year. Those numbers will grow if we cannot ensure ongoing funding for key support services. We also call for the continued funding of the Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) program within the T-HUD bill.

Congress must fully fund effective HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs. Use this form to contact your members of Congress right now!
