This article discusses criticism of U.S. President George W. Bush's administration in its response to the growing global HIV/AIDS epidemic. These criticisms come from members of the Government Accountability Office who believe that the administration's focus on abstinence for AIDS prevention is negatively affecting efforts to develop multi-pronged AIDS prevention programs in countries with U.S. funding. Programs promoting abstinence until marriage and fidelity within marriage pose funding challenges for many countries, including financially retarding prevention resources tailored to each country's specific needs.
