GAA Calls on President Obama to Act on the Reality of AIDS
Date:11/30/2009

"This epidemic is far from over. Every year, almost three million people become infected with HIV, and two million die from AIDS-related diseases."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On World AIDS Day 2009 the Global AIDS Alliance (GAA) calls on President Obama and his advisors to reflect on two recent alarming reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) showing that the AIDS pandemic continues to be of catastrophic proportion, affecting shockingly high numbers of people around the globe.

The following is a statement from Dr. Paul Zeitz, GAA's executive director:

Mr. Obama's inaction is affecting America's ability to meet its commitment to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and to sustain the momentum of the President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) begun by President George W. Bush. When P
