“Today, Governor Cuomo put New York at the forefront of the fight against HIV and AIDS. Although there is still no cure, scientific advances and widespread health care coverage through NY State of Health have put an end to the epidemic within our reach. I applaud Governor Cuomo for recognizing the potential to end AIDS in New York State by 2020 and for committing the human and financial resources necessary to develop and execute a plan to do so. I wish to particularly thank Housing Works, Treatment Action Group, ACRIA, GMHC, VOCAL-NY, ACT-UP, Harlem United, and the more than two dozen other HIV/AIDS and LGBT organizations that came together to make a strong and sustained case for this critical initiative.”
