Obama Seeks Boosts in Funds for AIDS Prevention, Research

August 25, 2010

In a letter sent Friday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), President Barack Obama said he is seeking $400 million from Congress to boost HIV/AIDS services and research. The money, which is part of amendments to Obama's budget for fiscal year 2011, would be offset by decreases from CDC and the National Institutes of Health. HIV prevention, services, and research would receive about $55 million; $250 million would enhance government-run health care training programs; and the rest would supplement state high-risk insurance pools and health insurance information for consumers.
