Investment = Impact: Urge Congress to Stay Committed to Fighting Global HIV/AIDS

Congress is making tough decisions about final funding levels for fiscal year 2015, including how much to invest in global HIV/AIDS.

The government is currently funded through a “stop-gap” funding measure called a continuing resolution. This funding is set to expire on December 11, 2014, so Congress must act quickly to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year. Both the House and Senate State and Foreign Operations Subcommittees have prepared important funding legislation, however the Senate includes a $300 million cut to global HIV/AIDS.
