Blog: 100 Reps. Sign Letter Asking President Obama to Make Three-Year, $6 Billion Global Fund Commitment

August 6, 2010

Last week, 100 members of the House of Representatives, led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), sent "a letter to President Obama encouraging him to make a three-year commitment of at least $6 billion to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria," according to the Center for Global Policy's "Science Speaks" blog. After attending AIDS 2010, Rep. Lee stated, "there's a lot of concern in the international community that we are not providing the necessary funding to meet our promises to combat this disease." The letter precedes a Global Fund "replenishment meeting" expected to take place in New York in October (Bryden, 8/2).

This week, Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) also sent a letter to President Obama, "expressing concern about funding being diverted [from HIV/AIDS programs] to other parts of the President's global health initiative," according to a post on his website (8/4).
