AIDS.gov Mission and Team

Objectives

  1. Expand visibility of timely and relevant Federal HIV policies, programs, and resources to the American public.
  2. Increase use of new media tools by government, minority, and other community partners to extend the reach of HIV programs to communities at greatest risk.
  3. Increase knowledge about HIV and access to HIV services for people most at-risk for, or living with, HIV.

AIDS.gov receives planning guidance from a cross agency planning group and uses a Communications Plan (701 KB) to guide AIDS.gov activities.

National HIV/AIDS Strategy

AIDS.gov communicates about and works toward achieving the President's National HIV/AIDS Strategy goals:

  1. Reduce new HIV infections
  2. Increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV
  3. Reduce HIV-related health disparities

Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council

AIDS.gov both manages and receives guidance from the Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council, which is composed of representatives from many of the Departments and agencies listed above. The Council brings together Web, content, and communications leads from Federal agencies with HIV/AIDS portfolios. Council members plan and implement Federal new media efforts around HIV/AIDS. The Council also promotes coordination and collaboration to improve delivery of HIV/AIDS prevention, testing, and treatment messages and services via new media.

The Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council is coordinated by Miguel Gomez, the Director of AIDS.gov (miguel.gomez@hhs.gov, (202) 690-5560). The group meets monthly via conference call and has an annual in-person meeting each winter. This year’s meeting was held on March 18, 2013 - Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council Agenda - (PDF - 54KB).

If you have questions about the Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council, please send them to contact@aids.gov.
