Critics Claim U.S. Global Health Initiative Off to a Slow Start

Two years after the White House announced its Global Health Initiative (GHI), critics claim the Obama administration is off to a slow start, reports GlobalPost in a two-part series. GHI was intended to serve as a blueprint for how U.S. aid could improve international health care and save lives in the developing world. However, some analysts believe that the program will fall billions of dollars short of its original target, $63 billion over six years. GHI was designed to cut costs, focus on the health of women and girls and to combine health-related international U.S. efforts—including HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and immunization—into one wide-ranging health service.

Until all Americans with HIV can access the medicine they need without the constant problems of losing access, state issues, etc., (I know this sounds cold), but I really don't care about the other countries getting assistance from the U.S.A., and will not until all Americans living in the states have full access to hiv health care. PERIOD!
