In the past two decades, the United States has led the way in making remarkable progress against HIV/AIDS around the world. Programs funded by the federal government, such as the Global Fund and PEPFAR, have saved tens of millions of lives while preventing even more new infections. These programs have served as model government programs in terms of efficiency and efficacy. These same programs now face the threat of cuts in the federal budget, which could undo much of the progress that we have made.
We’ll be asking Senators to continue America’s investment in life-saving programs like PEPFAR and the Global Fund in the federal budget. We’ll also be asking them to vocalize this support during the week of World AIDS Day on the House and Senate floor or through public statements.
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than eight million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
We believe the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.
Whether lobbying political leaders in world capitals or running cutting-edge grassroots campaigns, ONE pressures governments to do more to fight AIDS and other preventable, treatable diseases in the poorest places on the planet, to empower small-holder farmers, to expand access to energy, and to combat corruption so governments are accountable to their citizens. Cofounded by Bono and other activists, ONE is strictly nonpartisan.
