The article reports that the U.S. groups receiving government funding to fight HIV/AIDS have refused to sign an anti-prostitution pledge. The groups do not agree with a paragraph in the legislation to fight HIV and AIDS. The paragraph states that no funds can go to any group that does not have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking. The groups say that adopting such a policy would erode the trust they have developed with the high-risk people.
