Donors continue to hold back support from Global Fund
Report in The Lancet
The Lancet "Several donors to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria continue to hold back their contributions for this year. Some have yet to make pledges; others have frozen disbursements pending the outcomes of two ongoing reviews of corruption. The result is that resources available to the Global Fund for 2011 remain US$0·5 billion short of what the Fund was expecting for this year," reports Ann Danaiya Usher for The Lancet.
