Analysis: President Bush's commitment to AIDS



A look at President Bush's commitment to spend $15 billion over five years on tackling the global AIDS problem. Michael Buchanan in Washington examines whether an ideological battle at the heart of the US administration is preventing the money promised from being spent effectively and whether the commitment will, in fact, ever be met.

The programme also examines how widely available anti-retroviral drugs are now and what trade barriers and health concerns are still preventing them from being more widely distributed. Finally Analysis asks why do we need so many different global Aids funds? Would it be more effective to unite to fight the disease?
