AIDS Global Fund Allocates $8 Million to Tajikistan to Fight AIDS

October 1, 2004

On Thursday, Tajikistan's national AIDS director said the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria has approved more than $8 million for the country's AIDS fight. The aid is well timed, said Amirdzhon Mirzoyev, as the country's number of patients has passed an estimated 300 in recent months. In addition to transmission by drug users, Mirzoyev is concerned about migrants who return infected from Commonwealth of Independent States, jeopardizing their family. Tajikistan plans to establish a network of laboratories and modern anonymous testing and treatment clinics, he said.
