The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog examines ongoing federal budget negotiations and funding for PEPFAR, writing, "As policymakers and legislators celebrated PEPFAR's 10th birthday with pledges of 'strengthened' commitment to the goal of an AIDS-free generation, and researchers compared findings on the challenges ahead, events on Capitol Hill left the funding for the work yet to be done uncertain." The blog provides quotes from Secretary of State John Kerry; Chris Collins, vice president and director of public policy at amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research; and Bridget Kelly of the Institute of Medicine (Aziz, 6/26).
