CQ’s Adams Discusses Prospects for Global AIDS Legislation
Congressional Quarterly senior health reporter Rebecca Adams discusses the prospects for global AIDS legislation, among other subjects, in this week's "Health on the Hill From kaisernetwork.org and CQ." Adams discusses the possible impact of President Bush's support for a five-year, $15 billion bill to fund programs that fight the spread of AIDS worldwide, even if the bill does not include provisions prioritizing abstinence programs above condom distribution. According to Adams, Bush's support makes it likely that the bill will move quickly through Congress despite objections over condom programs (Adams, "Health on the Hill From kaisernetwork.org and CQ," 4/28). Adams' full audio report is available online.
