Editorials Press for Increase of Funding To Combat AIDS
At a United Nations conference later this month, President Obama "has a chance to make a clear and unequivocal message" on the fight against HIV/AIDS by pledging "$6 billion over three years" to the Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, a San Francisco Chronicle editorial states. A Los Angeles Times editorial adds that Obama "should commit to generous annual funding increases to the Global Fund," which directlyÂ finances "health systems in poor countries."
