Decline in HIV/AIDS Donor Funding Worries UNAIDS

Executive Director for UNAIDS expresses worry at the decline in donor funding towards HIV/AIDS service provision

Executive Director for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), Michel Sidibe, has expressed worry at the decline in donor funding towards HIV/AIDS service provision.

Speaking at a press briefing at the opening of the 21st International AIDS conference in Durban, Sidibe warned that if the decline in funding continues the fight against HIV/AIDS would lead to a reverse in the gains made in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

"We should not relent in the fight against HIV/AIDS like what happened with Malaria. We reached a point we thought we had controlled it and now it is still haunting us and still needs a lot of resources," he explained.
