Meeting on Health Care in Omaha, Nebraska

President Bush Participates in Meeting on Health Care in Omaha, Nebraska  

On Wednesday, President Bush said, “I believe these are important centers because they provide an integral service, and they take pressure off of our health care systems around the country. And so I laid out a goal of expanding the health care centers by 1,200, and we’re meeting that goal. And I want to thank members of Congress from both parties for understanding the importance and the vitality of community health centers. And I look forward to working with Congress to continue to expand the reach of these important facilities.”

President Bush Discusses World AIDS Day

On Friday, President Bush said, “World AIDS Day is both a day of sadness and a day of hope. We remember with sadness all those lost to AIDS. We mourn their lives cut short, their dreams of future denied. And we ask for God’s blessing on the loved ones they have left behind. We also mark this day with hope — for the improving prospects of those living with the virus, for the unprecedented number of infections being prevented, and for new progress toward eradicating this disease. Above all, we rededicate ourselves to a great purpose: We will turn the tide against HIV/AIDS — once and for all.”
