Blog: AIDS Dollars Wasted on Overhead

July 30, 2010

"Dollars desperately needed to save lives of AIDS patients have never left Washington or have been wasted on unnecessary overhead around the world," according to a Huffington Post blog. Pointing to the HIV/AIDS Save Lives First Act of 2010, recently introduced in the Senate, the authors of the post write: "A renewed commitment to saving lives has never been more critical." The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, for example, has "seen its clinics in Uganda flooded with patients turned away by U.S. funded programs." The authors conclude, "America made a commitment to lead the global war against AIDS. ... In these difficult economic times every dollar not spent saving a life or preventing a new infection is a dollar misspent" (Coburn/Weinstein, 7/28).
