GAA Calls For a Worldwide Response to President Obama's Global Health Budget Shortfalls
Date:5/12/2009

"The President and U.S. Congress need to hear world voices, especially voices from Africa, about the devastating impact of the President's broken campaign promises."

- Dr. Paul Zeitz, GAA executive director

WASHINGTON, May 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an email sent today to more than 12,000 health advocates and organizations around the world, Global AIDS Alliance (GAA) executive director Dr. Paul Zeitz called for a worldwide response to fix the funding gap in President Barack Obama's fiscal year 2010 budget request submitted to the U.S. Congress last week. (Email text linked below.)

When President Obama released his $3.6 trillion budget on May 7, he broke two campaign promises and created a total shortfall of $3.3 billion in U.S. support for global AIDS funding through U.S. bilateral AIDS programs, including PEPFAR, and for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. (Broken Promises fact sheet linked below.)

"The time has come for the global health community to speak out and tell President Obama that he must meet his promises for fiscal year 2010," said Zeitz. "The President's budget request sets his Administration on a path to breaking many of his campaign promises to the people of Africa and to falling short on its commitments to reassert U.S. moral leadership around the world, with devastating health consequences."

GAA estimates that as a consequence of President Obama's broken promises on U.S. bilateral AIDS programs:

  • One million people around the world won't receive treatment for AIDS.
  • 2.9 million women won't receive services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
  • 27 million people won't access sexual disease transmission prevention programs.
  • 1.9 million orphans and other children affected by or vulnerable to HIV/AIDS won't receive care and
