Nyasa Times Examines Growing Worries Over Future HIV/AIDS Funding in Malawi

March 17, 2011

The Nyasa Times reports on the growing concerns in Malawi over the future funding for HIV/AIDS treatment, after the Global Fund to Treat AIDS, TB and Malaria rejected the country's proposal for additional funds last year. "Principal Secretary for HIV and AIDS and Nutrition in the Office of the President and Cabinet Mary Shawa last year assured people living with HIV and AIDS that Malawi has funds to take them to 2012," however HIV/AIDS groups worry what will happen after these funds are used up, the news service writes, adding that the country has approximately 255,000 people on antiretroviral drugs (3/16).
