Call to Boost PEPFAR, Global Fund in FY 2012 Budget Request
December 24, 2010
Ahead of President Barack Obama's FY 2012 budget request, expected to be issued early next year, a post on the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog examines two letters sent earlier this week urging the president to increase his PEPFAR and and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria requests. One letter (.pdf) was sent by faith leaders and the other letter (.pdf) by Annette Lantos, wife of the late Congressman Tom Lantos, who co-authored the U.S. Leadership against HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria Act of 2008 (Mazzotta, 12/22).
