WASHINGTON---The decade-old law
that transformed the battle against
HIV and Aids in developing countries
is at a crossroads. The dream of
future generations freed from the
epidemic is running up against an
era of economic recovery and harsh
The President s Emergency Plan for
Aids Relief grew out of an unlikely
partnership between President George
W Bush and lawmakers led by the
Congressional Black Caucus.
It has come to represent what
Washington can do when it puts pol-
itics aside---and what America can do
to make the world a better place.
President Barack Obama, speaking
at the recent dedication of Bush s
presidential library, praised the com-
passion Bush showed in "helping to
save millions of lives and reminding
people in some of the poorest corners
of the globe that America cares."
House Democratic leader Nancy
Pelosi said of Bush in a statement that
"while many events may distinguish
his presidency, his devotion to com-
batting the scourge of HIV/Aids will
certainly define his legacy."
The Aids programme s future, how-
ever, is uncertain. Obama has upped
the stakes, speaking in his State of
the Union address this year of "real-
ising the promise of an Aids-free gen-
But funding for the relief plan s
bilateral efforts has dipped in recent
years and it s doubtful that congress,
in its current budget-cutting mood,
will reverse that trend when the cur-
rent five-year programme expires later
The Aids programme is also trying
to find a balance between its goals of
reaching more people with its pre-
vention and treatment programmes
and turning over more responsibility
to the host nations where it operates.
"This has been an incredible
achievement," said Rep Barbara Lee,
a senior Congressional Black Caucus
member who played major roles both
in passing the original 2003 act and
its 2008 renewal that significantly
increased funding for Aids, malaria
and tuberculosis treatment in Africa
and other areas of the developing
She spoke of the more than five
million people now receiving life-sav-
ing antiretroviral treatment and 11
million pregnant women who received
HIV testing and counseling last year.
"But I m worried that with any type
of level-funding or cuts we ll go back-
ward," she said.
The 2008 act more than tripled
funding from the 2003 measure,
approving $48 billion over five years
for bilateral and global Aids pro-
grammes, malaria and tuberculosis.
It also ended US policy making it
almost impossible for HIV-positive
people to get visas to enter the coun-
try.The Aids programme was the largest
commitment ever by a nation to com-
bat a single disease internationally.
According to the UN s UNAIDS and
the Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2011
the United States provided nearly 60
per cent of all international Aids assis-
A decade ago, almost no one in sub-
Saharan Africa was receiving anti-
retroviral treatment. By 2008, the Aids
programme had boosted that number
to 1.7 million. As of last year it was
The State Department says the pro-
gramme last year also helped provide
treatment to some 750,000 HIV-pos-
itive pregnant women, allowing about
230,000 infants to be born HIV-free,
supported two million male circum-
cisions and directly supported HIV
testing and counseling for 46.5 mil-
"This is a remarkable story that the
American people should know about,"
Kimberly Scott of the Institute of
Medicine, which recently completed
an evaluation of the Aids programme,
said at a forum sponsored by the
Kaiser Family Foundation and the
CSIS Global Health Policy Center.
According to UNAIDS, the number
of people living with HIV has levelled
off, standing at about 34 million at
the end of 2011.
New infections that year reached
2.5 million, down 20 per cent from
2001. Aids-related deaths were 1.7
million, down from 2.3 million in
Global Aids drive fights for funds
