Congress Must Increase Funding for Global AIDS Programs

The U.S. Congress is currently in the midst of the appropriations process – during which it decides how much money will be allocated to every U.S. government funded program. Under the Obama administration, funding for global AIDS programs has been consistently diminished or flat-lined since 2010. The President’s budget request for FY2017, released earlier this year, continued this flat-funding for the PEPFAR program, despite the urgent need for a $500 million increase in order to scale up access to treatment and prevention services. In the coming months, Congress has the ability to change this. 

Sign the petition telling COVID-19 Czar Jeff Zients to put people over Big Pharma profiteering and END the pandemic.

The Biden administration promised patents wouldn't stand in the way of people around the world accessing life-saving COVID-19 vaccines. But they haven't matched those words with action. Every day the U.S. fails to break Big Pharma monopolies, more people get sick and die from COVID-19.
