World Bank President, Global Fund GM Discuss AIDS Strategies in Separate Interviews

July 26, 2012

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, in an interview with the Guardian, "said he was passionately committed to ending absolute poverty, which threatens survival and makes progress impossible for the 1.3 billion people living on less than $1.25 a day," the news service writes. According to the Guardian, Kim "is determined to eradicate global poverty through goals, targets and measuring success in the same way that he masterminded an AIDS drugs campaign for poor people nearly a decade ago," and he "will set 'a clear, simple goal' in the eradication of absolute poverty" (Boseley, 7/25). In a related post in GlobalPost's "Global Pulse" blog, Kim speaks to correspondent John Donnelly "about the Bank's focus on eradicating poverty and fighting AIDS." "Good health is always going to remain a part of a much larger agenda to move people out of poverty," he says in the interview, adding, "The Bank's focus has appropriately been on health systems" (7/24).

In a separate interview in "Global Pulse," Donnelly talks with Gabriel Jaramillo, general manager of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria "about his work as general manager of the Global Fund." According to the blog, Jaramillo said, "What keeps me awake this week is that we need a very clear understanding of the demand in the countries so we can really shoot strategically where we get the best bang for the buck, where are the unserved opportunities, where is the burden hitting the hardest. If you find that in business, that is gold. That is where the opportunities are" (7/25).
