AIDS Funding ‘Should Increasingly’ Flow Through Multilateral Channels

Writing in the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Global Health Policy Blog,” CGD Senior Fellow Mead Over examines the benefits and challenges of channeling development and health aid through bilateral and multilateral channels, and how foreign policy can influence the continuation or cessation of such funding. He concludes, “Aid that funds entitlements like AIDS treatment should increasingly be channeled through multilateral donors like the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria and the World Bank on the understanding that multilaterals will only rarely, and with the explicit consent of their boards of directors, curtail entitlement funding to any country for any reason” (5/2).
