- Global Epidemic, U.S. Response: A Winning Strategy, What You Can Do
The global effort against the AIDS epidemic is stalling on the issue of resources. The main reason is that the U.S. Congress is not hearing from constituents that they care about the epidemic in poor countries (where about 90% of the cases are located); many other countries follow the U.S. lead in how seriously they take the global epidemic. About 10,000 letters to Congress per month would make all the difference -- one letter from every 25,000 Americans. We analyze why it has not happened so far -- and how to change the course of the worldwide response to AIDS.
