Paul Zeitz, executive director of the Global AIDS Alliance, in The Hill (September 16, 2010)
In recent weeks, some of President Obama’s strongest supporters have expressed frustration with his HIV/AIDS policies. Unless the United States switches course and dramatically increases its funding for the global fight against AIDS, we could lose millions of lives and a generation of progress.
Many AIDS advocates and I have a sinking feeling the HIV/AIDS strategy in the Obama White House is not getting significant senior-level attention. By contrast, I know that the AIDS crisis merited direct Presidential involvement during the Clinton and Bush administrations.
How times have changed.
