Rwanda to Give $1 Million to UN Fund Fighting AIDS, Malaria

February 1, 2002

The Rwandan government will donate $1 million to the UN fund set up to combat AIDS, TB and malaria, officials said Thursday. "Although its means are limited, Rwanda pledges to release this money because AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria are a serious challenge to development in Rwanda and the entire planet," Health Minister Ezechias Rwabuhihi told AFP. Some 11 percent of the adult population in Rwanda is HIV-positive, and malaria is the chief cause of death in the central African country, he said.
