Blog: Senate Letter Calls on Obama to Fund PEPFAR at Congressionally-Authorized Levels
December 24, 2009
"There seems to be a significant -- and hopefully growing -- degree of displeasure on Capitol Hill about the Administration's commitment to combating the AIDS epidemic," according to the Infectious Diseases Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog. The post focuses on a letter to President Barack Obama (available on the blog), which asks for PEPFAR to be funded at the levels authorized by Congress. The Senate letter was "spearheaded by Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Johnny Isakson, R-Georgia" (Shesgreen, 12/18).
