Suicide—and a Reflection on Our Changing American Society - 2019-01-24 04:35:09
By: Elinore F. McCance-Katz, MD, PhD, Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data on the ten leading causes of death in the United States recently.

What can government do about this? What responsibility do we have to each other to take actions that will alter this course? These are questions of great importance, because rising deaths by suicide say something about the conditions under which our people live and die and about our society at large.

By: Tammy R. Beckham, DVM, PhD, Acting Director, Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Cross post from HIV.gov Blog World AIDS Day is a time to reflect on those we've lost to HIV/AIDS, as well as on how much progress we've made in the national response to HIV. It's also an important opportunity to assess where we need to improve and what our next steps should be. Our Successes We continue to make progress toward achieving our goals of reducing new HIV infections, improving health outcomes among people living with HIV, and reducing some HIV-related disparities. Reaching these goals will require that we sustain the progress we have already made and accelerate efforts, efficiently and effectively, across HIV prevention, treatment, and care services and programs.
