Introduced in House (07/09/2004)
New United States Global HIV Prevention Strategy to Address the Needs of Women and Girls Act of 2004 - States that it shall be U.S. policy to: (1) pursue an HIV prevention strategy for each country for which the United States provides assistance to combat HIV/AIDS that emphasizes the needs of women and girls; and (2) support a variety of culturally appropriate HIV prevention programs for each country for which the United States provides HIV/AIDS assistance, and to ensure that unnecessary requirements on fund use are not imposed.
Directs the President to establish a comprehensive and culturally appropriate HIV prevention strategy for each country for which the United States provides assistance to combat HIV/AIDS. Requires each strategy to encompass health and HIV prevention education beyond the ABC model "Abstain, Be faithful, use Condoms" as a means to reduce HIV infections, particularly among women and girls.
Amends the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act of 2003 to eliminate the "abstinence-until-marriage" reference with respect to the sense of Congress' HIV/AIDS funding allocation.
