August 24, 2010
The U.S. will "provide $1 billion over the next five years to help fight AIDS in Mozambique, where some 1.5 million people are living with HIV," VOA News reports. The PEPFAR-backed partnership is "aimed at reducing new infections, strengthening Mozambique's health system, and improving access to treatment for people infected with HIV, and those suffering from AIDS" as well as improving collaboration between government and aid groups. "Since PEPFAR began in 2003, U.S. funding of anti-AIDS programs in Mozambique has increased from $37.5 million in 2004 to around $250 million in 2009," according the news service (8/23).
