Barbara Lee Calls on Bush to Increase Global AIDS Funding

"The ongoing HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria pandemics represent the greatest humanitarian challenge in the world today. In the interests of social stability, economic productivity, nationally security, and most importantly, a sense of compassion for others, we have a moral duty to act to prevent the spread of these diseases and treat those who are infected. $7.54 represents the United States fair share to addressing three pandemics and is really just a drop in the bucket compared to the $6 billion a month we are spending to fight the war in Iraq.”
