Is Global Fund's Appeal to Fight Medicine Theft Enough?
December 17, 2010
In a post on American Enterprise Institute's "Enterprise Blog," the AEI's Roger Bate commends the Global Fund's decision to call for "serious action against the theft of medicines." He continues: "Unfortunately, the Fund has a habit of simply moving from one recipient to another after a fraud is exposed," without "fight[ing] recipient nation corruption significantly. Without properly exposing the guilty, it is likely the guilty will still benefit in the future, especially in locations where political connections are more important than competence or honesty" (12/12).
