NGOs publish report on impact of funding shortfall
A new report by leading European non-governmental health organisations says that the fight against HIV and TB in Eastern Europe and Central Asia is being threatened by cuts in global health funding. The report describes how the funding shortfall at the Global Fund and changes in eligibility criteria risk undermining achievements already made. The NGOs called on the European Union to make targeted investments in the health of its neighbours where the Global Fund is unable to do so, and to ensure it honours existing pledges to the Fund.
