Donors Must Continue To Fund HIV/AIDS Efforts In MICs To Prevent Backslide In Progress

Devex: Funding cuts to MICs will reverse gains made in HIV response
Alvaro Bermejo, executive director of the International HIV/AIDS Alliance

“The battle to defeat HIV will be won or lost in middle-income countries. … It is estimated that in 2020, 70 percent of people living with HIV will be living in MICs. Therefore, the continued withdrawal of funds from these countries will have devastating effects on the progress made in the global response to HIV. The E.U. must remain a champion for equity, for meaningful participation of affected communities, for sexual and reproductive rights, and commit to ambitious targets” (4/20).
