EU, Global Fund Address HIV/AIDS in Eastern Europe

August 7, 2013

AIDS-related deaths "in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union have soared in the last decade while the EU continues to put the brunt of its funding for treatment and prevention in developing nations, according to experts who say this is creating a potential health timebomb on the EU's eastern frontier," EurActiv reports. "Efforts over the last decade from the international community to prevent and treat infections in sub-Saharan Africa have delivered tangible results, with the number of AIDS-related deaths dropping significantly in many countries, ... [y]et the same results do not hold true in Eastern Europe," the news service writes, noting some EU member states have experienced increases in the number of AIDS-related deaths between 2001 and 2011. EurActiv discusses efforts by the EU and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to address HIV/AIDS in Eastern Europe, and the article includes comments from Nicolas Cantau, regional manager at the Global Fund; Mario Raviglione, director of the WHO's Stop TB Department; and European Commission spokesperson Frédéric Vincent (Jacobsen, 8/5).
