President Bush did good yesterday when he signed a revised AIDS Relief initiative.
The plan, which allocated $48 billion over five years to fight HIV/AIDS, also lifts a travel ban on infected persons looking to enter the US.
Gay group Log Cabin Republicans applauded the President’s action, of course, with HIV/AIDS policy consultant David Reznick saying,
President Bush has done tremendous work to combat this disease globally and that deserves to be an important part of his legacy. This legislation will continue the dramatic improvements in the lives of millions of people living with this disease.
Recent reports indicate that HIV-infected people are living considerably longer than they did before new brands of life-sustaining drugs.
