The President's AIDS intiative has provided treatment for 1.5 million people, prevented HIV transmission in over 10 million pregnancies and provided care for almost 3 million orphans in 15 countries in Africa and other regions. The initative also supports AIDS prevention efforts using the "ABC" (abstinence, be faithful, condoms) model. Some individuals say that programs asking people to not have sex or to limit their sexual activities are not effective. Since the President has asked Congress to double funds for all parts of his AIDS initiative we decided to ask you:
Do you think programs promoting abstinence and being faithful should be part of our AIDS prevention efforts? What else do you think can be done to help prevent AIDS and to treat those who are infected with HIV?
