Today the United States announced a major increase in funding that would be provided to various organizations and countries around the world in order to help fuel the fight against HIV and AIDS. The announcement came from Secretary of State Clinton and the initiative is part of a larger medical recovery program that will be used to help support many organizations around the world.
As part of the announcement Clinton also announced that the International AIDS Conference would be in the United States this year, the first time this has happened in 22 years. The conference is one of the biggest and most important conferences for the medical industry and thanks to various medical breakthroughs recently this year is expected to be one of the best conferences of the past few years.
The total funding from the U.S. government will now be enough to fund the drugs and medication needed for over 4 million people worldwide, which is a significant increase from the current numbers. More importantly the United States is now going to invest hundreds of millions more dollars into prevention research and various prevention campaigns that will hopefully be the next big step in fighting the war against HIV and AIDS. Multiple research programs are very promising right now and in the future they might just be the answer everyone is looking for.
