Black Religious Leaders Urging Passage of HIV/AIDS Bill

June 1, 2009

Black religious leaders across the country are urging the passage of a bill (H.R. 1964) that would provide more than $600 million in funding for faith-based prevention, testing and outreach programs, the St. Petersburg Times reports. The bill, named the National Black Clergy for the Elimination of HIV/AIDS Act of 2009, calls for programs targeting specific populations within the black community, including young people, substance users and inmates, among others. The bill, introduced in Congress this spring, has been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce (Zayas, St. Petersburg Times, 6/1).
