The National STI Coalition is seeking “policy opportunities” after Trump rolled out his proposed budget. The budget proposal cuts funding for Health and Human Services by 10%, though it includes $716 million for the Ending the HIV Epidemic plan. Co-chair of the committee Arnold Pang stated “programs are under-resourced and overwhelmed by the surge in STIs,” and their director of policy said “this STI crisis isn't going anywhere.”
