POZ Magazine:Global Fund Gets $11.7 Billion, Fails to Meet Its Goals

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria raised only $11.7 billion of its $20 billion goal, The New York Times reports. The fund also didn’t reach its lowest funding goal of $13 billion, the amount needed to continue only its current programs. The United States, the largest contributor to the fund, pledged $4 billion, a 38 percent increase over last year. However, some AIDS activists have said the U.S. pledge isn’t enough. For the fund to meet its goals, all countries would have had to double their donations. Michel Kazatchkine, MD, executive director of the fund, said no one currently on treatment it provides will be cut off, but other targets will be lowered for the next few years.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
