Friends and Colleagues,
Thanks to everyone that has called or written to Senator Coleman over
the last few months regarding global AIDS funding.  We have let him know
that this is an important issue for the Minnesota medical community, and
he has responded by supporting the Global AIDS Act that was approved by
Congress in May and by taking a trip to Africa to see first hand the
devastation being caused by HIV.  The Global AIDS act authorized an
expenditure of $3 billion for global AIDS programs in fiscal year 2004.
However, we LOST an important vote in the US Senate last week, and
should be disappointed in the lack of support on behalf of Senator
Coleman.
The actual funding for Global AIDS had to be appropriated separately,
and President Bush's budget only accommodated $2 billion.  Last week,
the Senate turned down an opportunity to fully fund the new US AIDS
initiative.  We were hoping that Coleman would support the amendment to
the Labor, Health and Human Services appropriation bill offered by
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), which would have brought US spending levels
close to the originally authorized $3 billion.  However, with the White
House and Senate leadership leaning hard against the amendment, Durbin's
proposal failed by 51-43. Senator Susan Collins of Maine cast the lone
Republican vote in favor of the Durbin amendment.  
The Senate has another chance to increase funding for global AIDS when
an amendment to the Foreign Operations spending bill is offered.  It is
due for a vote in October, and we need more Republican support!  Coleman
plays a pivotal role in Congress, as a moderate Republican and member of
the foreign relations committee, and a strong voice from Minnesota's
medical community, we believe, can quite literally change the face of
current trends in HIV prevalence and deaths caused as the result of
AIDS.
Here is what you can do:
1)  Send a letter to Senator Coleman.
AMSA has set up an incredibly effective and easy way to do this.  Please
pass this information on! 
They have already prepared a letter for you to send!  Go to the
following web site, enter your zip code, and follow the simple
instructions.

You will be able to send a letter to Coleman and a Thank You note to
Senator Dayton at the same time.  You can also add your own text to the
letters.  This is AMSA's Legislative Action Center, and there are some
other issues similarly set up that you may be interested in checking
out.  It will only take a minute!
2)  Today (Tuesday, Sept. 16) is a National Call-In Day.
Join thousands of concerned citizens across the country by calling the
White House to support increased funding for global AIDS programs.  
Purpose: To encourage President Bush to urge Congress to support $3
billion dollars for global AIDS in Fiscal Year 2004 including $1 billion
for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.
Key points to think about when making your call:
*	Over 42 million people are infected with AIDS 
*	3 million children worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS 
*	More than 14 million children are orphaned due to HIV/AIDS 
Contributing your voice to this campaign is simple!  This actually does
work and only takes a few minutes!
Call 202-456-1111 on September 16.
A White House operator will answer.  Tell President Bush that you
support the United States spending $3 billion on global AIDS this year,
including $1billion for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.
Tell the President to deliver on his promise for this funding without
taking the money from other health and development programs.
Thanks again for all you have done to support Global AIDS funding.  You
are making a difference!  If you have any questions please get back to
me at
