SANAC Bemoans AIDS Funding Cut

The South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) says a big cut in the United States funding for South Africa's HIV-AIDS programmes could lead to an increase in infections at universities and colleges.

Briefing the parliamentary portfolio committee on HIV-AIDS, SANAC chief executive officer, Fareed Abdullah, said that funding from the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief will be reduced from US$549 million (over R5 billion) in 2011 to US$270 million in 2017.

Abdullah says HIV-AIDS prevention and awareness programmes at colleges and universities will be among those hit by the funding cut.
