Trump Administration’s Expansion Of Mexico City Policy Will Impact U.S. Global AIDS Efforts, Experts Say

Washington Post: How a Trump order on abortion could hurt the fight against AIDS in Africa
“A Trump administration order took effect this week barring U.S. aid for [foreign] global health organizations that discuss or provide referrals for abortion. But the new policy put another program in the crosshairs: America’s global HIV/AIDS effort. … Under President Trump’s expansion of the so-called global gag rule … many HIV/AIDS organizations funded by the United States stand to lose their funding, putting at risk the possibility of eliminating the epidemic by 2030, a commitment established at the U.N. General Assembly last year. … Experts say Trump’s policy could especially affect girls and young women, who are now the most likely people to contract the disease…” (Sieff, 5/18).
