Six Experts Resign From Presidentís HIV/AIDS Advisory Panel in Protest
NBC News ^ | June 19, 2017 | Phil McCausland

Six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) resigned in protest of the Trump administration, which they allege "has no strategy to address the on-going HIV/AIDS epidemic."

Scott Schoettes, Counsel and HIV Project Director at Lambda Legal, explained in a Newsweek op-ed Friday that he and five colleagues decided to leave their posts on the council for a number of reasons.

But their largest expressed gripe was that the Trump administration has not sought input from the council when formulating HIV policy.

Drama queens. How about these LGBTers go out to their community and tell gay men to stop having anonymous sex.

If we just made sodomy illegal again, AIDS/HIV would be gone in 10 years.

HIV/AIDS is caused by BEHAVIOR. Why should we bother trying to fix it if they decline to fix the behavior?

There is no “epidemic” in the general population. There is only an epidemic among 2% of the US population where 2% of that 2% are impacted.

Focus.

They want health services to eradicate the vector?

6 people who are no longer getting paid by the Federal Government. Seems like a win to me.

Good riddance.

Self draining swamp.

We have only had an “epidemic” for 34 years now.

Gee, what needs to be done? /s

Let's take a big guess....Never Mind

My guess is that Hillary has added them to "The Resistance".

The real problem with AIDS is that it was not to be associated with gaydom....and it spread like wildfire.

Yes, the solution to the “epidemic” is very simple, but no one really wants to know what it is. It’ll probably solve itself eventually anyway.

So....the honorary appointments to the symbolic council quit.

Wonder how many of my tax dollars they were soaking up. Sounds like a win, to me.

Here’s a strategy:

Don’t put things where they don’t belong.

Once upon a time, HIV/AIDS was a mystery. Now we know what causes it. Anyone who doesn’t voluntarily abstain from spreading it, needs to be forcibly prevented from spreading it. Problem solved.

The Gay Mafia has their panties in a wad again.
Where in the Private Sector does 6 people leaving a company get NBC news coverage?

"has no strategy to address the on-going HIV/AIDS epidemic."

Seems to me that the 'strategy' would be the work of the advisory council, not the responsibility of the Trump admin. Why are they on the advisory council if they can't advise??
