Zambia Downplays Global Fund Freeze

June 17, 2010

Reuters reports that Zambia "played down fears of a looming health crisis" after the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria withdrew $300 million in health aid "citing corruption." Zambian Health Minister Kapembwa Simbao said "the Global Fund would still continue supporting Zambia but the funding would now be made available through the United Nations Development Programme," Reuters writes. "We hope that with the support of the UNDP, the Ministry of Health can build capacity to administer the funding in about one to two years," Simbao said (6/16).
