U.S. State Department Seeks Boost to Advance Wars on Terrorism, AIDS

January 3, 2003

The State Department has requested substantial budget increases to fight the global AIDS epidemic and to counter terrorism. Secretary of State Colin Powell has given high priority to the struggle against HIV/AIDS. "The positions we hold in our governments give our voices resonance at home and abroad," he recently told a group of foreign ambassadors. "We can and must use our voices to convince others of the urgency and gravity of this global problem." Powell said every nation -- regardless of its size, economic status or political strength -- is vulnerable to the disease.
