President Barack Obama is set to go down in history as the first U.S. President to cut the country's commitment to fighting AIDS.
The President’s 2013 budget includes $220 million in funding cuts to fight global AIDS -- an amount equal to a loss of care for 640,000 people living with HIV/AIDS for one year. U.S. funding cuts have led to the closure of two HIV/AIDS treatment centers in South Africa, and the Obama Administration has projected a 79% cut in global AIDS funding for hard-hit Ethiopia. This is shameful.
These budget cuts mean death for people living with HIV/AIDS. Join AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, and call on Obama to stop these shameful cuts and make fighting for people with HIV/AIDS his legacy.
Take action and send a message to the President: Budget Cuts = Death.
