Donald Trump has fired the remaining members of his advisory panel on HIV and Aids, abruptly and without full explanation, and drawing accusations that he is retaliating against activists and experts who oppose his healthcare agenda. The White House said such moves are typical when one administration takes over from another. The presidential advisory council on HIV and Aids, known as Pacha, is a diverse team of experts from across the US that was set up under Bill Clinton. It volunteers advice to the White House and government agencies on all aspects of HIV and Aids prevention, research, activism and community care and outreach.
