CMMB Applauds America at Its Best as PEPFAR is Reauthorized by U.S. Government
Date:7/30/2008

WASHINGTON, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- CMMB (Catholic Medical Mission Board), the leading U.S.-based Catholic charitable organization focused exclusively on global healthcare, praised the U.S. government's extension of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the year 2013, signed into law today by President Bush.

"The world sees America at our very best with this new five-year, $48 billion commitment," said CMMB President and Chief Executive Officer John F. Galbraith, who attended the bill-signing ceremony at the White House. "The U.S. government support means that we can continue to save lives today, while building healthcare capacity that will serve the world's poor far into the future."

CMMB has been a recipient of PEPFAR funds since the program was initiated in 2003. CMMB receives significant PEPFAR funding for healthcare services provided to AIDS patients, orphans and other vulnerable children suffering from the pandemic, and other recipients in countries such as Kenya, South Africa, Haiti, and Zambia. The new bill (HR 5501) directs that 10 percent of funding be directed to orphans and vulnerable children. CMMB recently expanded its operations in Kenya with the opening of a second office and with the creation of a Kenya-specific corps of volunteer healthcare professionals.
