Blog: Uganda Doctor Discusses PEPFAR Funding

April 23, 2010

The "Science Speaks" blog talks with Lydia Mungherera, an HIV-positive medical doctor from Uganda, about "what's at stake in the unfolding crisis over global AIDS funding." The blog notes that Mungherera is "growing increasingly concerned about the ramifications of flat-funding for the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, a cornerstone of the international response to HIV/AIDS," as the implementation of President Obama's Global Health Initiative "seems to ensure that some funding will have to taken from PEPFAR to make the other pieces of the program work." The blog addresses how lack of access to treatment hampers HIV testing efforts and features a video of Mungherera discussing the link between HIV and maternal and child health (4/20).
