Phill Wilson of Black AIDS Institute called my attention to a poll that AOL is running which asks respondents to vote on whether they would support a Presidential candidate who does not have a National AIDS Strategy. Mad Professah had blogged previously about the proposed National AIDS Strategy that numerous groups have agreed to promote jointly last month.

To date, only Barack Obama and John Edwards have publicly released comprehensive national strategies to combat HIV/AIDS in the United States. Black AIDS Institute has analyzed Edwards' plan not not Obama's plan (which oddly enough doesn't seem to be easily found on his website). The Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton has not released a plan yet and as the days continue this is startingto look increasingly curious, especially for a candidate so closely linked with health care issues.

Don't you think that every Presidential candidate should have a National AIDS Strategy? Take the poll now!
