The article reports that the AIDS legislation endorsed by U.S. President George W. Bush is inviting criticism from social conservatives. The legislation instead of focusing exclusively on the encouragement of condom use, emphasizes abstinence and monogamy, as in the so-called Uganda model. The House International Relations Committee's bill does not direct funds toward the promotion of abstinence and fidelity. According to Conservatives, the bill should direct more funds to treatment than to prevention. The amount of money that should be directed to the Global Fund to Combat AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, a multilateral organization is also emerging as a major issue.
