Devex Examines Potential Implications For U.S. Global HIV/AIDS Spending Under Trump Administration

Devex: What the Trump administration could mean for U.S. HIV/AIDS spending
“HIV/AIDS advocates are warning against any cuts to U.S. spending on the fight against the disease as the new administration of President-elect Donald Trump determines how it will approach global assistance. … While Trump has not said anything specifically about the PEPFAR budget, comments such as ‘Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,’ and his statement that the U.S. should ‘stop sending foreign aid to countries that hate us,’ have raised concerns among some development professionals that Trump may cut the foreign aid budget and that this in turn could spell a reduction in funding for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment…” (Edwards, 12/1).
