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. These reports show, for example, that there are 33 million people worldwide living with HIV; that AIDS is the leading cause of death among women of childbearing years worldwide; and that globally, less than one-third of people who needed antiretroviral treatments for HIV infection in 2008 received them. Now, new treatment guidelines issued by the WHO on 11/30/09 increase UN estimates of the number of people eligible in 2010 to receive antiretroviral treatment (ART) from 13.7 million to as many as 18.7 million, making the need and urgency for scaled up U.S. responses even greater on this World AIDS Day.

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

GAA has joined with other global health advocates in today issuing a World AIDS Day report card on the President's performance on the global AIDS crisis, giving him an overall minimally passing grade of D+.

President Obama's 2010 budget presented to Congress earlier this year virtually flat-lined HIV/AIDS funding, ignoring the staggering medical and epidemiological evidence that we need more, not less, to prevent and treat AIDS around the world. 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
