AIDS Healthcare Foundation: ‘Sad day in battle against AIDS’ as Obama elects to skip AIDS Conference | Facebook

“In the 1980s, ‘Silence Equaled Death.’ Today, President Obama’s Ongoing Silence on AIDS Equals Death for Millions.” — Michael Weinstein, President, AIDS Healthcare Foundation

As 20,000 leading AIDS scientists, researchers, medical providers, patients and advocates gather in Washington, many demand the White House ends patient waiting lists for the AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP) and restore funding for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

WASHINGTON (July 16, 2012)¾With White House confirmation today that President Barack Obama will NOT attend or address the International AIDS Society’s XIX International AIDS Conference, which kicks off this Sunday, July 22, 2012 in Washington, DC, advocates from AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) expressed surprise and dismay over the President’s decision, noting that it sends a discouraging message about the president’s view of the importance of HIV/AIDS and his commitment to addressing the pandemic in a meaningful and effective manner.
