FY17 Funding:

  • #Congress must reject @POTUS’ proposed $18b cuts in FY17 to vital non-defense programs, including #HIV/AIDS research and prevention
  • @POTUS should not balance the FY17 budget by cutting $18b from important health and research programs that work to #EndHIV

Sample Post 1:

146 organizations join The AIDS Budget and Appropriations Coalition in urging Congress to maintain vital funding for FY2018 appropriations bills for #HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment, research and housing in the U.S. To meet the goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, we MUST #FundHIV! http://bit.ly/2oTqzsO

Sample Post 2:

We’ve made significant progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the U.S. We know how to treat HIV. We know how to prevent HIV. We know that treatment is an effective form of prevention. But we need adequate resources for domestic HIV/AIDS and related programs to maintain our country’s commitment to ending this epidemic. #FundHIV http://bit.ly/2oTqzsO

Sample Post 3:

Despite progress, there are still 1.2 million people living with HIV in the U.S. In order to see an end to this epidemic, adequate resources for domestic HIV/AIDS and related programs are a necessity. We joined 146 organizations in urging @POTUS to #FundHIV in FY2018: http://bit.ly/2oLBSoE

 

Sample Post 4:

As Congress finalizes the FY2017 budget, we urge them to reject @POTUS’ proposed $18 billion cuts to vital non-defense programs that include #HIV/AIDS research, prevention, and treatment. To continue progress made in efforts to #EndHIV, we MUST ensure that programs like @HHS, @cdchiv, and @nih.gov continue to receive adequate funding.
