‘Science Speaks’ Discusses Senate Passage Of PEPFAR Extension Act, Poses Questions About Funding

IDSA’s “Science Speaks”: Senate extends PEPFAR, while funding remains a question
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses the U.S. Senate’s passage of the PEPFAR Extension Act of 2018, writing, “[W]hether the acknowledgement of what needs to be done will be matched by the funding the work will require remains a question. With a $50 million increase for PEPFAR proposed by the Senate, and the $41 million increase for USAID’s TB program proposed by the House in the air, Congress, facing a Dec. 7 deadline, has yet to pass a funding bill for fiscal year 2019” (11/29).
