Tell your U.S. Senator to fully fund programs vital to people living with HIV/AIDS in Fiscal Year 2014!
Members of the Senate Budget Committee plan to vote on the federal spending bill that supports Fiscal Year 2014’s domestic HIV/AIDS programs in early July. As a part of National HIV Testing Day on June 27, TODAY, we need to let U.S. Senators know that in addition to HIV testing, they should fully fund access to HIV prevention, care, treatment and research!
