Brazil Rejects "Global Gag"
Resists $40 Million Pressure To Replace Proven, Effective AIDS Program With Pompous Moralizing
"I would like to confirm that Brazil has taken this decision in order to preserve its autonomy on issues related to national policies on HIV/Aids as well as ethical and human rights principles."
-- Pedro Chequer, director of Brazil's HIV/AIDS program

Good for you, Sr. Chequer. And good for Brazil.
