The report was commissioned by the White House Office of National AIDS Policy in support of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). A critical part of NHAS is to accurately monitor the scope of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the availability and success of treatment and prevention programs. Data collected from a nationally representative sample of people with HIV can be used to help monitor the effect of the Affordable Care Act on health care coverage and utilization. Monitoring will provide an enhanced means of assessing the effect of the NHAS and the ACA on care received by people with HIV. Fix This: Turn This Into a Tweet
