SouthAfrica: Retraction by Global Fund on HIV funding

South African blog, Idland posts on the retraction of a $40M grant that was coming to town to prevent mother-to child transmission of hiv by the Global Fund because of a discrepancy between the treatment cost per head and the drug cost per head. He comments “It seems so much more vile to be literally stealing the HIV treatment from small children. I guess believing that HIV/AIDS is a Western conspiracy offers some consolation to the thieves.”
