S. African National AIDS Council CEO Speaks to PlusNews About Reform, Funding

October 12, 2012

Fareed Abdullah, CEO of the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC), who took office in July, spoke with PlusNews regarding the body's reform, the revival of provincial AIDS councils, resource mobilization, and the appointment of a new board that allows SANAC to operate independently. According to the news service, Abdullah said the secretariat has three times as many staff as it did three months ago, adding, "We have a team of eight people working on the grant renewal process for about five Global Fund [to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] grants. We've committed two staff members to dealing with PEPFAR [the U.S.-based President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief] and the new agreement to co-manage programs, and we'll expand [staff] as the needs expand" (10/11).
