CHAPTER 76 - ASSISTANCE TO COUNTRIES WITH LARGE POPULATIONS HAVING

HIV/AIDS

-HEAD-

Sec. 6802. Findings and purposes

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

Congress makes the following findings:

(1) According to the Surgeon General of the United States, the

epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune

deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) will soon become the worst

epidemic of infectious disease in recorded history, eclipsing

both the bubonic plague of the 1300's and the influenza epidemic

of 1918-1919 which killed more than 20,000,000 people worldwide.

(2) According to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS

(UNAIDS), more than 34,300,000 people in the world today are

living with HIV/AIDS, of which approximately 95 percent live in

the developing world.

(3) UNAIDS data shows that among children age 14 and under

worldwide, more than 3,800,000 have died from AIDS, more than

1,300,000 are living with the disease; and in 1 year alone - 1999

- an estimated 620,000 became infected, of which over 90 percent

were babies born to HIV-positive women.

(4) Although sub-Saharan Africa has only 10 percent of the

world's population, it is home to more than 24,500,000 - roughly

70 percent - of the world's HIV/AIDS cases.

(5) Worldwide, there have already been an estimated 18,800,000

deaths because of HIV/AIDS, of which more than 80 percent

occurred in sub-Saharan Africa.

(6) The gap between rich and poor countries in terms of

transmission of HIV from mother to child has been increasing.

Moreover, AIDS threatens to reverse years of steady progress of

child survival in developing countries. UNAIDS believes that by

the year 2010, AIDS may have increased mortality of children

under 5 years of age by more than 100 percent in regions most

affected by the virus.

(7) According to UNAIDS, by the end of 1999, 13,200,000

children have lost at least one parent to AIDS, including

12,100,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa, and are thus

considered AIDS orphans.

(8) At current infection and growth rates for HIV/AIDS, the

National Intelligence Council estimates that the number of AIDS

orphans worldwide will increase dramatically, potentially

increasing threefold or more in the next 10 years, contributing

to economic decay, social fragmentation, and political

destabilization in already volatile and strained societies.

Children without care or hope are often drawn into prostitution,

crime, substance abuse, or child soldiery.

(9) Donors must focus on adequate preparations for the

explosion in the number of orphans and the burden they will place

on families, communities, economies, and governments. Support

structures and incentives for families, communities, and

institutions which will provide care for children orphaned by

HIV/AIDS, or for the children who are themselves afflicted by

HIV/AIDS, will be essential.

(10) The 1999 annual report by the United Nations Children's

Fund (UNICEF) states "[t]he number of orphans, particularly in

Africa, constitutes nothing less than an emergency, requiring an

emergency response" and that "finding the resources needed to

help stabilize the crisis and protect children is a priority that

requires urgent action from the international community.".

(11) The discovery of a relatively simple and inexpensive means

of interrupting the transmission of HIV from an infected mother

to the unborn child - namely with nevirapine (NVP), which costs

US$4 a tablet - has created a great opportunity for an

unprecedented partnership between the United States Government

and the governments of Asian, African and Latin American

countries to reduce mother-to-child transmission (also known as

"vertical transmission") of HIV.

(12) According to UNAIDS, if implemented this strategy will

decrease the proportion of orphans that are HIV-infected and

decrease infant and child mortality rates in these developing

regions.

(13) A mother-to-child antiretroviral drug strategy can be a

force for social change, providing the opportunity and impetus

needed to address often long-standing problems of inadequate

services and the profound stigma associated with HIV-infection

and the AIDS disease. Strengthening the health infrastructure to

improve mother-and-child health, antenatal, delivery and

postnatal services, and couples counseling generates enormous

spillover effects toward combating the AIDS epidemic in

developing regions.

(14) United States Census Bureau statistics show life

expectancy in sub-Saharan Africa falling to around 30 years of

age within a decade, the lowest in a century, and project life

expectancy in 2010 to be 29 years of age in Botswana, 30 years of

age in Swaziland, 33 years of age in Namibia and Zimbabwe, and 36

years of age in South Africa, Malawi, and Rwanda, in contrast to

a life expectancy of 70 years of age in many of the countries

without a high prevalence of AIDS.

(15) A January 2000 United States National Intelligence

Estimate (NIE) report on the global infectious disease threat

concluded that the economic costs of infectious diseases -

especially HIV/AIDS - are already significant and could reduce

GDP by as much as 20 percent or more by 2010 in some sub-Saharan

African nations.

(16) According to the same NIE report, HIV prevalence among

militias in Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo are

estimated at 40 to 60 percent, and at 15 to 30 percent in

Tanzania.

(17) The HIV/AIDS epidemic is of increasing concern in other

regions of the world, with UNAIDS estimating that there are more

than 5,600,000 cases in South and South-east Asia, that the rate

of HIV infection in the Caribbean is second only to sub-Saharan

Africa, and that HIV infections have doubled in just 2 years in

the former Soviet Union.

(18) Despite the discouraging statistics on the spread of

HIV/AIDS, some developing nations - such as Uganda, Senegal, and

Thailand - have implemented prevention programs that have

substantially curbed the rate of HIV infection.

(19) AIDS, like all diseases, knows no national boundaries, and

there is no certitude that the scale of the problem in one

continent can be contained within that region.

(20) Accordingly, United States financial support for medical

research, education, and disease containment as a global strategy

has beneficial ramifications for millions of Americans and their

families who are affected by this disease, and the entire

population which is potentially susceptible.

(b) Purposes

The purposes of this chapter are to -

(1) help prevent human suffering through the prevention,

diagnosis, and treatment of HIV/AIDS; and

(2) help ensure the viability of economic development,

stability, and national security in the developing world by

advancing research to -

(A) understand the causes associated with HIV/AIDS in

developing countries; and

(B) assist in the development of an AIDS vaccine.

orphans in sub-Saharan Africa

-STATUTE-

(a) Statement of policy

It is in the national interest of the United States to assist in

mitigating the burden that will be placed on sub-Saharan African

social, economic, and political institutions as these institutions

struggle with the consequences of a dramatically increasing AIDS

orphan population, many of whom are themselves infected by HIV and

living with AIDS. Effectively addressing that burden and its

consequences in sub-Saharan Africa will require a coordinated

multidonor strategy.

(b) Development of strategy

The President shall coordinate the development of a multidonor

strategy to provide for the support and education of AIDS orphans

and the families, communities, and institutions most affected by

the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa.

(c) Definition

In this section, the term "HIV/AIDS" means, with respect to an

individual, an individual who is infected with the human

immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the pathogen that causes the acquired

immune deficiency virus (AIDS), or living with AIDS.

Sec. 6812. African crisis response initiative and HIV/AIDS training

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

Congress finds that -

(1) the spread of HIV/AIDS constitutes a threat to security in

Africa;

(2) civil unrest and war may contribute to the spread of the

disease to different parts of the continent;

(3) the percentage of soldiers in African militaries who are

infected with HIV/AIDS is unknown, but estimates range in some

countries as high as 40 percent; and

(4) it is in the interests of the United States to assist the

countries of Africa in combating the spread of HIV/AIDS.

(b) Education on the prevention of the spread of AIDS

In undertaking education and training programs for military

establishments in African countries, the United States shall ensure

that classroom training under the African Crisis Response

Initiative includes military-based education on the prevention of

the spread of AIDS.
