G8 Plans Its Own AIDS Funding
In advance of next week's G8 summit, member countries are discussing what the group's role should be in fighting AIDS in the developed world. President Bush's goal to double PEPFAR funding is "interesting," according to Germany. PEPFAR seems to be having its intended effect of keeping AIDS on the agenda and spurring countries to keep up with the United States, but each grop will offer its own plan.
Global warming is sucking up the oxygen right now, but many government officials say that AIDS and Africa will be the focus of the summit. Activists are pushing some big-league changes.
