Led by HIVMA/IDSA members Robert Murphy, MD, and Renslow Sherer, MD, 37 health care professionals in Illinois urged Sens. Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Richard Durbin (D-IL) in a July letter to defend longstanding, bipartisan efforts to fund domestic and global AIDS programs. The programs are poised to lose funding in fiscal year 2012, and as lawmakers with authority over funding for domestic and global AIDS programs, Sens. Kirk and Durbin can influence the U.S. response to HIV/AIDS. The letter (PDF) can be found on the Center for Global Health Policy’s website.
