June 24, 2010
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria signed new grant agreements with Indonesia worth $55 million, Antara News reports (6/23). The grants are "to scale up the government and civil society's response to HIV in all 33 of the country's provinces," according to a Global Fund press release. The new grants will be administered by the Ministry of Health, the National AIDS Commission and Nahdlatul Ulama, the largest Muslim organization in the country (6/23)."Michel Kazatchkine, the executive director of the Global Fund, said that Indonesia continued to be receive funding because the country has strengthened its control over [HIV's] spread," Jakarta Globe reports. The new agreement is the ninth installment of the Global Fund's $414 million pledge to fighting HIV/AIDS in Indonesia (Sagita, 6/23).
