February 26, 2009
Today Joe Solmonese issued a statement on the selection of Jeffrey S. Crowley, an openly gay man, to head the Office of National AIDS Policy for President Barack Obama. The Office of National AIDS Policy (ONAP) is part of the Executive Office of the President’s Domestic Policy Council (DPC). Crowley, a Senior Research Scholar at Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute, will coordinate the federal government’s efforts on HIV/AIDS policy and will help guide the administration’s development of disability policies. Joe said:
The announcement of Jeffrey Crowley signals that HIV/AIDS issues will be an integral part of health care reform in the Obama Administration. Throughout his campaign, President Obama called for the development of a bold national AIDS strategy. With Crowley’s leadership, we look forward to working with the Office of National AIDS Policy in setting an aggressive agenda to combat HIV/AIDS in our country.
Prior to his time at Georgetown, Crowley served as the Deputy Executive Director for Programs at the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA), overseeing the organization’s public education, community development, and training activities.
