World AIDS Day and PEPFAR Success

Don’t hold your breath waiting on the Left Stream Media to trumpet this news. It might make Presidents Bush and Trump look good. Can’t have that!

President Trump proclaimed December 1, 2017, as World AIDS Day, a moment to “honor those who have lost their lives to AIDS [and] celebrate the remarkable progress we have made in combatting this disease.”

President Bush started the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in 2003.  Before PEPFAR, only 50,000 people were receiving lifesaving antiretroviral treatment (ART) in sub-Saharan Africa. Today, PEPFAR supports more than 13.3 million men, women, and children on ART.
