Additional Efforts Being Taken to Address HIV / AIDS

In following with his predecessor, President Obama has announced that the United States will continue it's ardent support of HIV/AIDS funding to the developing world.

This additional funding will be announced with the president's 2011 fiscal budget and will include an additional allocation of $165 million to support efforts at malarial infections as well as maternal and child health.

The steps being taken by the Obama administration are in line with the previous strides of President Bush and are on target with goals 5 and 6 of the Millennium Development Project.
