June 04 2004 12:00 AM ET
A national survey released Wednesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that most Americans want the U.S. government to spend more on international AIDS efforts. Fifty-six percent of the survey respondents said the United States should spend more on HIV prevention and treatment overseas; only 9% think the government already spends too much money on such efforts. A total of 55% of survey respondents said they believe spending more money on HIV prevention in Africa and in other developing countries will lead to meaningful progress, up 15% over the 40% who said so in the 2002 survey. The survey of more than 2,900 adults, titled "Survey of Americans on HIV/AIDS" and conducted this spring, also found that 71% of Americans get information about HIV and AIDS from the media, with only 9% saying their doctors and other health care professionals are their top source for such information.
