In Capitol Hill Appearance, Elton John Urges Congress To Continue Global HIV/AIDS Funding
Roll Call: Graham, Leahy Host Elton John to Promote Fight Against HIV/AIDS
“Sens. Lindsey Graham and Patrick J. Leahy hosted Sir Elton John at the Capitol Tuesday evening as part of a push to ensure funding for the bipartisan effort to combat AIDS. … ‘Our work is not done yet,’ Elton John said. ‘Although PEPFAR and the Global Fund have made a huge impact, the reality is that most people living with or at risk of contracting HIV do not have access to lifesaving prevention, care, and treatment. But all of that can change, and will change, if Congress remains steadfast in its commitment to ending this epidemic’…” (Lesniewski, 5/5).
