Bush Pushes for more HIV/AIDS Funding in Africa

President Bush is now backing an emergency HIV/AIDS response that is the largest in history to target an infectious disease. He is trying to increase the funding commitment from 15 to 30 billion over the next five years. Bush is proud of US citizens and their generous donations to humanitarian efforts worldwide. He also feels the moral imperative to instill hope and bring an end to human suffering -- and AIDS is certainly one pandemic wreaking much havoc. The president is also behind an effort to reduce malaria, a major killer of children in Africa.
