Sustain Commitment to HIV/AIDS Funding

December 1, 2009

"Worldwide AIDS infection rates are curving down. ... But with modest success go challenges," according to a San Francisco Chronicle editorial. "In public health politics, the AIDS fight is too successful for its own good, making the effort a target in the competition for funding. It would be a mistake to buy this argument in total and cut AIDS spending to pay for a new fight in other areas," according to the editorial, which adds, "There's no question that new health fights lie ahead, but hobbling a successful crusade isn't good policy." According to the newspaper, "Other diseases badly need attention. But the fight against AIDS should not be sacrificed. The battle is still far from over" (12/1).
