Obama to announce HIV/AIDS strategy


WASHINGTON, July 13 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama discusses a comprehensive strategy for combating HIV in the United States Tuesday at a reception honoring the HIV/AIDS community.

The National HIV/AIDS Strategy will include a commitment to making the United States a place where new HIV infections are rare and where people infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, the virus that causes AIDS, can access high-quality care, the White House said in a release.

In the afternoon, the Senate Democratic leadership will go to the White House to discuss legislative priorities with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden before the August recess, administration officials said.

Before meeting with the senators, Obama and Biden will receive the daily briefings, then Obama will meet with senior advisers.
