Just in time for World AIDS Day, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton unveiled a Blueprint for Achieving an AIDS-Free Generation. Overall, the Blueprint is surprisingly strong, especially in light of the fact that over the past few years, the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) has done a lackluster job on young people and focused its rhetoric almost exclusively on biomedical approaches.
December 1st is World AIDS Day, a time to recognize those who live with HIV, to honor those who’ve died, and to come together in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In recent years HIV science and medicine have taken monumental leaps forward, but Hillary Clinton’s now oft-repeated goal of an AIDS-free generation will remain unattainable without on-going fiscal support for critical HIV/AIDS programs.
Opponents of birth control don’t just want to limit access in the U.S., they want to slash U.S. support for international family planning programs. It’s a perennial debate, and it’s about to start all over again
In a day to go down in history, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton broke the political sound barrier regard the word “abortion” and may well have forever changed the course of US policy.
By including questions about abortion on Republican exit polls, but not Democratic ones, pollsters guarantee the media pays attention to how conservative, anti-choice voters feel about the issue, while overlooking the majority of Americans’ support for broad access to abortion and contraception.
