US must lead on AIDS funding: Elton John

Singer Elton John, founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, testifies about global health programs during a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, May 6, 2015Elton John forecast Wednesday the end of AIDS in his lifetime — but only if the United States keeps leading the world in bankrolling its eradication. The British pop music icon and AIDS activist was the star turn at a Senate hearing on future funding for the United States’ core global AIDS initiative. “The AIDS epidemic is not over and America’s continued leadership is critical,” the 68-year-old John warned. “We cannot afford to let the window close if our efforts flag,” added the founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has raised more than $321 million since 1992 for AIDS treatment and prevention.
