Obama Issues Statement Regarding U.N. AIDS Meeting

In response to the United Nations High-Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, President Barack Obama released a statement via the White House:

As the global leader in the fight against AIDS, the United States will continue to do our part. That’s why my administration has increased funding for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief to record levels, increased our support to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and launched our Global Health Initiative to help countries build their capacity to deliver better health care…. This week’s meeting at the United Nations is an opportunity for all of us to do better. More governments need to contribute to this effort. More awareness is needed so that no one with HIV/AIDS is stigmatized or discriminated against. More coordination is needed so that the investments we’re making are preventing as many infections, delivering as many treatments and saving as many lives as possible. No nation can do this alone. Together, we can resolve to meet our shared responsibilities. Together, we can come closer to our vision of a world without HIV/AIDS.
