Why is this still funny to me?

Repost from @gettreportage photographer @brentstirton | In this image from #Zambia, a stoic mother and her sister wash a #daughter dying from Aids related complications. This 18-year-old girl passed an hour after this photograph was taken. At the time, she died because she could not access anti-retroviral treatment. As we watch the #Trump tragedy, #ISIS, #Syria, the #Migrant crisis etc. #humanity seems to forget that infectious disease is still by far the biggest killer. It’s horrifying to see the #Pharma spend on erectile dis-function and realize how that compares to the funding for HIV AIDS. Globally, the number of #HIV+ people is over 37 000 000. Close to half that number can access ARV’s but the infections are increasing. At the end of 2016, $19.1 billion was available for the AIDS response in low- and middle-income countries. Domestic resources constituted 57% of the total resources for #HIV in low- and middle-income countries in 2016. #UNAIDS estimates that US$ 26.2 billion will be required for the #AIDS response in 2020 in low- and middle-income countries, with US$ 23.9 billion required in 2030. When you consider the GDP of those countries and their likely loan debt, you quickly see how disease devastates not only people but entire economies.

On this day in 1990: President George H.W. Bush (not pictured) signs the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990, which provided $200.5 million in federal funds for HIV community-based care and treatment services in its first year. Passed with wide bi-partisan support shortly after the teenage AIDS activist death and extended by President William Clinton in 2000, President George Bush in 2006 and President Barack Obama in 2009 (all pictured here), the Ryan White CARE Act remains the largest federal program specifically for people living with HIV/AIDS, serving over half of Americans living with HIV.
