AIDS Activists March Over US AIDS Funding

Hundreds of AIDS activists call on the United States to provide global leadership to achieve the Millennium Development Goals

Hundreds of AIDS activists have called on the United States to provide global leadership to achieve the Millennium Development Goals including universal access to antiretroviral therapy.

In their memorandum, the protestors pointed out that, “We would like to state that the Treatment Action Campaign and our allies acknowledge and appreciate that the US government, particularly through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the US contributions to the Global Fund on AIDS, TB and Malaria, has played a leading role in providing treatment, care and prevention for Aids as well as TB and malaria.

They expressed their concern about the US funding of health interventions targeting AIDS, TB and malaria, particularly PEPFAR, adding that from 2009 to 2010, the increase in PEPFAR funding was only 2.3 percent.
