U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Eric Goosby said today, "There is no stronger supporter of the Global Fund than the United States." He is right. But it would appear that the global financial crisis is taking a big hit on the Global Fund's ability to raise money.
How much will the global financial crisis impact funding for the fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria? By the end of next week, we may have a fairly precise answer to that question when donors meet for a replenishment conference of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
Folks may recall that prior to the new years I posted a PSA about an end of year campaign from our friends at Nothing But Nets. Via Adrianna Logalbo, good news!
Let’s begin 2010 with some exciting news: You helped to raise enough money to reach our goal of sending life-saving nets to more than one million refugees in Africa – congratulations! We are so proud to have supporters like you on the Nothing But Nets campaign.
