In Letter To U.S. President Trump, Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus Co-Chairs Urge Continued Bipartisan Support For Global, Domestic AIDS Programs

Mic: Co-chairs of Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus urge Trump to take action to end epidemic
“Throughout his campaign and tenure as president thus far, Donald Trump has remained relatively mum on the issue of HIV/AIDS. But in a letter sent to the president on Tuesday, the co-chairs of the Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus urged Trump to continue decades of effort to make battling the epidemic a public health priority at the federal level. … In the letter, [Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.)] call on Trump to continue support for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief — a federal initiative created by former President George W. Bush — which they laud for increasing the number of people receiving treatment for the deadly disease by ‘nearly 11.5 million’ over the last two decades…” (Rodriguez, 3/14).
