UN to Bankroll $12 Million in HIV/AIDS Prevention in Vietnam

October 25, 2002

The UN Global Fund for HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has decided to provide $12 million for Vietnam to carry out HIV/AIDS programs in the 2003-2007 period, UN Development Program Representative Jordan Ryan said at a conference held in Hanoi on Oct. 23. Vietnam is one of the first countries to receive assistance from the fund. The country reported 55,000 people with HIV/AIDS by late last month, but the actual figure is estimated to be closer to 200,000.
