Report card shows progress – and room for improvement – in fight against HIV in D.C.

HIV/AIDS | D.C. Appleseed today released its ninth annual report card grading the District government on a number of issues related to the effort to end HIV in the city. The report card notes progress on some areas (including leadership, grants management, HIV surveillance, and monitoring and evaluation) and indicates where more work is necessary, particularly around education and housing. (D.C. Appleseed, 12/16)

The annual report card has been supported by the Washington AIDS Partnership since 2004. Look for more coverage of the report in the Daily tomorrow.
