The US House of Representatives has passed a resolution to triple funds to fight AIDS, malaria and TB

A: The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a resolution that will triple the money that the U.S. donates to fight AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis around the world.

The House easily passed the resolution on Thursday, after the Senate passed it last week. President George Bush, who has strongly supported this program, said that he would sign the resolution into law as soon as it reached his desk. The resolution would allocate 48 billion dollars over five years to provide medicines and health care to persons suffering from the diseases. In 2003 President Bush, with the support of Congress, launched this program with an initial grant of 15 billion dollars over five years.

Mr. Bush said that when the program was first undertaken in 2003, only 50,000 people were receiving anti-retroviral drugs in black African countries. Today, he said, 1.7 million people around the world are getting the medication under the program.

US House Funds Combat Diseases

1. Different countries and organizations have participated in donating to fight diseases, especially in Africa. The US is said to be the biggest global donor, giving over thirty percent of the total funding against diseases, especially HIV/AIDS and malaria. The US 303-115 vote received Bush’s support for the five-year, $48 billion plan. The plan has also received approval and criticism from the American public. “While some GOP conservatives questioned the sharp spending increase, others said the US aid had important security as well as moral implications and gave a needed boost to America’s reputation abroad.”

2. Some organizations such as Global Fund have reported positive outcomes from the aid given to countries with the diseases. Global Fund’s 5-year result of 2006 estimated 1.25 lives saved from the $3.2 billion grants, with 75% of the grants being used adequately, and the 94% of the programmatic targets achieved. “In regards to HIV and AIDS, the report showed that 1.2 million orphans had been provided with basic care and support, and 770,000 people had been placed on antiretroviral AIDS therapy as a result of Global Fund money. An update from May 2007 boosted the figure for people [receiving] antiretroviral therapy to 1.1 million, and also reported that 2.8 million people had received treatment for tuberculosis under the Directly Observed Therapy Scheme, and 30 million insecticide-treated bed nets had been distributed to help prevent the spread of malaria.
