LGBT health policy and HIV policy under Obama-Biden

The Obama-Biden Administration has launched an array of groundbreaking initiatives that will have a profound impact on LGBT health. These include the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, the Institute of Medicine report on LGBT health, the National Prevention Strategy (as part of ACA), and technical guidance from the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator on HIV prevention with men who have sex with men in Africa and the Caribbean. How do these initiatives connect to one another, and what are their prospects for success in this time of fiscal austerity and political reaction? What other political opportunities exist to advance LGBT equality, for example through the reauthorization of the Older Americans Act?
