House Approves $50B Plan to Fight AIDS

Ad Feedback

The House of Representatives has approved a $50 billion plan to fight AIDS and other diseases worldwide.

It triples President Bush's emergency plan for AIDS relief that Congress passed back in 2003.

About $41 billion over the next five years will be used to target AIDS.

The current program is already credited with saving more than 1 million lives in Africa alone.

It's the largest amount of U.S. funding ever to be used to fight a single disease.

The rest of the money will be spent to fight diseases like tuberculosis and malaria.
