Letter to Senate Urges Support for PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Bill of 2013
October 17, 2013
The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog provides an update on the PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Bill of 2013, writing, "The Center for Global Health Policy, which produces this blog, is urging support for the legislation, which 253 clinicians and scientists rallied behind, with this letter [.pdf] to Senate members." The authors of the letter write, "This legislation, if enacted in law, promises continued leadership to combat the world's three leading infectious disease killers," adding, "Moreover, a focus on measurable gains from targeted HIV interventions furthers hope that with broad support and ongoing commitment, the historic effort that began a decade ago will lead to an AIDS-free generation" (Barton, 10/16).
