Panel Discusses Funding for Universal Access to HIV Treatment
June 14, 2011
The Center for Global Health Policy's Science Speaks blog includes a summary of a recent Global Fund meeting on HIV financing. "The most dynamic and passionate remarks came from Morolake Odetoyinbo, CEO of the non-governmental organization Positive Action for Treatment Access in Nigeria and a woman living with HIV/AIDS. She argued that African nations were not doing enough to use their resources to care for their own people," according to the post. "Global Fund Director Michel Kazatchkine and UNAIDS Director Michel Sidibe closed the panel with some remarks about the sobering financial challenges that exist," the blog notes (Lubinski, 6/13).
