Blog: What Aid Recipient Countries Should Demonstrate to G8 Donors
May 21, 2010
In reaction to the New York Times' series of articles about HIV/AIDS, IAS President Elect Elly Katabira on the organization's "Stronger Together" blog calls on "the G8 nations -- and the G20 too -- to honour their pledges and move beyond their current commitments" for global health funding. In addition, she writes that aid recipient countries "need to convince the G8 nations and other donors that we are committed to caring for our patients by being transparent in the way we handle donor funds. In addition, we need to demonstrate clearly that we are investing more in the care of our people by devising and implementing strategies to sustain HIV care in our countries for many years to come" (5/12).
