"The Administration's FY2004 request for international HIV/AIDS programs totaled about $1.9 billion. The Consolidated Appropriations (P.L. 108-199), which was signed into law on January 23, 2004, would provide approximately $2.2 billion, including bilateral HIV/AIDS programs and contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. The bill would provide a total of approximately $2.4 billion for fighting HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, particularly tuberculosis and malaria. Most international HIV/AIDS funding is included in the Foreign Operations Appropriations and the appropriations for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. On May 27, 2003, the President signed into law H.R. 1298 (P.L. 108-25), the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003, authorizing $3 billion per year for FY2004 through FY2008 (a total of $15 billion) to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Of this amount, up to $1 billion was authorized for the Global Fund in FY2004. The Administration had requested $200 million for the Global Fund, while H.R. 2673 would provide $550 million (pre-rescission)."
