South African Anti-AIDS Drive Raises No Money

June 6, 2001

A South African government drive launched last November to raise money from businesses for a new campaign against HIV/AIDS has raised no money so far, the South African news agency SAPA reported yesterday. The office of Deputy President Jacob Zuma launched the campaign on Nov. 29, telling corporate guests in Pretoria that $8 million a year was needed for the three-year "Wake-Up" campaign, aimed at urging individuals to accept responsibility in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Bongani Khumalo, the HIV/AIDS adviser to Zuma, told SAPA, "The fund-raising drive will now be held in abeyance to be re-launched in a re-positioned form within the context of a wider orchestrated campaign against HIV/AIDS later in the year."
