Germany to Provide About $9 Million to Tanzania Budget for Controlling Spread of HIV/AIDS

March 13, 2006

Germany on Friday signed an agreement to provide about $21 million in budget support to Tanzania, and about $9 million of the funds will go toward controlling the spread of HIV/AIDS in the country, Reuters/News24.com reports. Under the agreement signed between Tanzania's Ministry of Finance and the German Embassy in the Tanzanian capital of Dar Es Salaam, the money dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS will be used to market condoms and contraceptives. According to UNAIDS, about 1.6 million people in Tanzania are HIV-positive, though the agency says that the number could be higher because officials estimate that only one-fifth of the HIV cases in the country are reported (Reuters/News24.com, 3/10).
