Six Experts Resign From President's HIV/AIDS Advisory Panel in Protest

'Trump Doesn't Care About HIV': Six Resign From Presidential HIV Advisory Council Six People Resign From Trump's HIV/AIDS Advisory Council Because He "Doesn't Care"

Specifically, Schoettes criticized the White House for supporting legislation "that will harm people living with HIV and halt or reverse important gains made in the fight against this disease".

The Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) is a body responsible for providing recommendations and information to the president, as well as overseeing the nation's strategy for combatting the illness.

Schoettes noted that while both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders met with HIV advocates on the campaign trail, "candidate Trump refused, [missing] an opportunity to learn-from the experts-about the contours of today's epidemic and the most pressing issues now affecting people living with HIV". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), did not meet with HIV advocates. Upon assuming office, Trump took down the website of the Office of National AIDS Policy.

However, the Trump administration is not aware of these realities.

President Donald Trump pauses during a press conference with Romania's President Klaus Iohannis in the Rose Garden of the White House June 9, 2017 in Washington, DC. 'This means no one is tasked with regularly bringing salient issues regarding this ongoing public health crisis to the attention of the President and his closest advisers, ' Schoettes writes.


The overall main idea in the op-ed is how the administration has created a plan to scale back the Affordable Care Act, claiming the law has resulted in "gains in the percentage of people with HIV who know their status, the percentage engaged in care, [and] the percentage receiving successful treatment". All of the members of PACHA should follow the courageous lead of the six who resigned last week, and speak out loudly about this administration's brutal policies. As of Monday morning, some of their bios remained on PACHA's government website.

"Whatever the politics of that decision, Mr. Trump missed an opportunity to learn-from the experts-about the contours of today's epidemic and the most pressing issues now affecting people living with HIV". "Where's their courage? This should have been a mass protest with ALL members resigning", wrote prominent, long-time AIDS activist Peter Staley. "And in my editorials, I will continue to make the point that we need good health care, and we need good social services to really make a difference".

Neither the White House nor the Department of Health and Human Services responded immediately to requests for comment Monday morning.

The former council members ended their article saying, "We hope the members of Congress who have the power to affect healthcare reform will engage with us and other advocates in a way that the Trump Administration apparently will not".
