Budget: Obama Retreats on Global AIDS, Says AHF
Date:5/7/2009

As a Senator Last Year, Obama Voted for $9.6 Billion Annually in Funding for George Bush's Lifesaving Global AIDS Program; Now, President Proposes Only $6.6 Billion in FY'10 Budget for PEPFAR

Obama Budget Calls for $51B for PEPFAR Over Six Years; Congress Voted for $48B Over Five Years

WASHINGTON, May 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest non-profit HIV/AIDS organization in the US, which currently provides medical care and services to more than 100,000 individuals in 21 countries worldwide in the US, Africa, Latin America/Caribbean and Asia, today chided President Barack Obama for retreating on his commitment to global AIDS. In his Fiscal Year 2010 Budget, released earlier today, the President proposes only $6.6 billion allocated for the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) for 2010 while just last year as a Senator, Obama voted for $9.6 billion in annual funding for the landmark global AIDS program created by President George W. Bush.

"It is perplexing that as a Senator, Barack Obama voted for $3 billion more in annual funding for the global fight against AIDS, than he is now -- as leader of the free world -- proposing in his 2010 budget," said AHF President Michael Weinstein. "Under President Bush, the last Congress, including then-Senator Obama, allocated $48 billion for PEPFAR over the next five years; roughly $9.6 billion annually. Obama now proposes $51 billion in global AIDS funding; however, the money is to be spread over six years, dropping the amount to just $6.6 billion annually. We have previously expressed our concern and disappointment over President Obama's inaction on HIV/AIDS issues throughout his first hundred days in office. It is disheartening to see President Obama retreat from his Senatorial commitment on global AIDS funding."
