A Step Past Controversy and Toward a Cure

As we celebrate World AIDS Day on December 1, I call on all of my Senate colleagues to put aside controversy and pass the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act when the Senate reconvenes next week.

HIV/AIDS affects not just patients, but their families and communities. That’s why I have fought in the Senate to fund programs that reduce new incidences of HIV infection and to increase funding for treatment and finding a cure.

This bill is an important step in the battle against HIV/AIDS. But it must not stop with this bill. I will continue the battle and stand sentry to fight and prevent HIV/AIDS in Maryland and around the world. We must be ready to respond and support our families and communities suffering from HIV/AIDS.
