Will Congress Do More for HIV Prevention?
Date:3/28/2008

f already-stigmatized groups and given free rein to police and resulted in further discrimination against women in sex work. Instead of reducing dependence on sex work, the policy is driving sex workers underground and away from the NGOs and health workers best poised to help them.

It is our duty to use PEPFAR funding to prevent as many infections as possible. However, large sums of money, spent unwisely, will not stem the rapid spread of HIV and will require an ever growing need for increased resources in the future. The bills fall short exactly where more was needed: full and flexible funding of prevention programs that will enable us to end the pandemic.

The fact that HIV/AIDS is primarily a sexually transmitted infection makes addressing it in the U.S. political context challenging. But true U.S. leadership in this area would enable best health practice to prevail over ideology and save countless lives.
