World Vision Index of Concern: Half of Americans Surveyed Said They Would Be Willing to Pay More Taxes to Combat AIDS
Date:11/30/2007

NEW YORK, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new World Vision Index of Concern released yesterday reveals that even following the death of an estimated 28 million people from the AIDS pandemic over the past 26 years, one in three adults among the world's top industrial democracies say they still know little or nothing about the disease. However, half of Americans surveyed said they would be willing to pay more taxes to combat AIDS.

"I think that goes contrary to the view in Washington. I don't think Washington realizes that many Americans care about AIDS at that level," said Richard Stearns, president of World Vision at a UN Press Conference yesterday. "So in a way it gives them the political cover to do more because ... when you have 50 percent of the country saying 'you could raise my taxes if you could use that money to do more for HIV and AIDS,' that's a message that our politicians I think are not aware of," he said.
