ABSTRACT
This article discusses the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a plan developed by U.S. President George W. Bush to provide financial assistance to areas affected by the AIDS virus. The author suggests half of the funds will be used to promote abstinence and notes that no PEPFAR funds can be used for contraception, abortions or people engaged in prostitution. She suggests that religious concepts and attitudes toward sex should not be a factor in the program. INSETS: 25 Years Ago;50 Years Ago.
