Tell President Barack Obama to Keep the Promise on AIDS!

This petition had 8,160 supporters

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.
