International Community Must Fill Funding Gap for AIDS, TB, Malaria
December 12, 2013
Despite "enormous gains made over the past decade to curb three devastating diseases: AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria ... there is still a big gap between what's been accomplished and what more could be done with sufficient financing," a New York Times editorial states. The editorial summarizes progress against the diseases, but notes more could be accomplished with additional funding and coordinated efforts. "Pledges by nations to [the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] have fallen short. It will be shameful if millions of people are left to die while donors look the other way," the editorial concludes (12/11).
