U.S. Ambassador Criticizes South African Government's Use of Resources in Fight Against AIDS

February 12, 2003

On Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador Cameron Hume criticized South Africa's fight against AIDS, questioning if it will use U.S. money it is being given to fight the pandemic. Hume was referring to President George W. Bush's recent pledge to give $15 billion for AIDS relief. Hume said that money to fight AIDS in South Africa would not help if the government failed to make good use of it, the South African Press Association reported. An estimated 4.7 million South Africans, 11 percent of the population, are infected with HIV.
