Center for Global Development Blog Highlights BBC's Coverage of Global Fund
December 3, 2013
Writing in the Center for Global Development's (CGD) "Global Health Policy" blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a senior fellow at CGD, explains she was interviewed for a recent BBC "Panorama" show examining the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The show "will likely take a more critical view of the Global Fund than much of its recent press," she writes. Glassman continues, "I'm glad the BBC is dedicating 30 minutes of its programming to the Global Fund. But I hope the message isn't that the U.K. taxpayers -- or those of any other donor country -- should be weary of their government's investment in the fund." She concludes, "We aren't better off without the Global Fund. We are better off with a better Global Fund. I hope this is reflected on the BBC program, as well in the pledges at the replenishment meeting on December 3. And most importantly, I hope this is reflected in greater progress against AIDS, TB and malaria in the months to come as we begin to see the results of recent Global Fund reforms" (12/2).
