Senate Democrats on Thursday introduced a bill that would provide $900 million in emergency relief for Africa, including $100 million specifically earmarked for HIV/AIDS programs. The legislation would provide emergency relief to Ethiopia, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique, Lesotho, and Swaziland, including funding for the prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmissions. Senate minority leader Tom Daschle said the aid is "the moral thing to do." Democrats are considering introducing a similar aid bill in the House.
