Barack Obama's Policies INCREASE HIV/AIDS Deaths- Activists Allege! As ARV, mother to child prevention, circumcision work elsewhere against the virus!


Barack Obama's Policies INCREASE HIV/AIDS Deaths- Activists Allege! As ARV, mother to child prevention, circumcision work elsewhere against the virus!

Global Post:

'“The Obama administration has turned out to be a big disappointment,” said Gregg Gonsalves, a longtime AIDS activist now at Yale University. “They talk big but they have no new money behind it. They talk about an AIDS-free generation, but they cut the PEPFAR budget.”

In this first of a series of stories over the next two months, GlobalPost will examine several key issues in the Obama administration’s approach to fighting AIDS. This includes looking at whether the US government can effectively deploy new tools to prevent infections, including: Expanding treatment, which has been proven to prevent new infections in 96 percent of cases; rapidly expanding male circumcision, shown to reduce female-to-male infection by more than 60 percent; and trying to end all mother-to-child infections of infants during birth and breast-feeding.'
