has lost its “war on HIV” and the war against drug-resistant strains of the virus, according to a new report.
“We have a long way to go,” said Dr. Robert Naiman, president of the American Medical Association (AMA), at the annual meeting of the AMA, which was held in Orlando, Fla.
“HIV is still the No. 1 killer of Americans, and we’re losing this war.”
In 2016, the AMA urged President Donald Trump to take a more aggressive approach to the pandemic and increase the amount of resources the U. S. spent on HIV testing and treatment.
The AMA also recommended a plan to increase the number of beds in the U, and to allow U. States to contract with a third country to conduct tests on people in quarantine, as the country’s medical infrastructure is in dire straits.
The 2016 report also highlighted the “lack of effective tools” for prevention of HIV infections and suggested better ways to protect against the virus’ spread through the air, through the water supply and through food.
The 2015 CDC report estimated that only 12% of U. s adults and children had received at least one HIV test.
While there has been a marked drop in the number in recent years, the number is still more than double the number who were infected with the virus in 2016, according the AMA.
The number of people who have died of HIV/ AIDS in the United States in 2017 was almost 20,000, an increase of more than 30% from the previous year.
The AMA’s report notes that a new epidemic, the pandemics West Africa, India and China, has also contributed to the drop in HIV cases in the country.
The report says that this increase has resulted in a reduction in the overall rate of new infections and a rise in the prevalence of newly diagnosed infections, but it also notes that the virus is still “a very potent threat to public health.”
The report also called for more resources to be directed toward treating and preventing HIV.
Despite this, Dr. Naiman said, the U S remains the leading source of HIV infection in the world, and “we have to make the most of that.”
