Gates Foundation Support Enables Indonesian TB Treatment Program

Gabrielle Fitzgerald, director of Global Program Advocacy at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, writes in the foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog about a TB treatment program in Indonesia. “…I visited Dr. Hasan Sadikin Hospital with colleagues from the [Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] and Tahir, a prominent Indonesian businessman who is the largest individual private donor to the Global Fund. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match Tahir’s funding and together these contributions will support the majority of the fund’s TB treatment programs in Indonesia…” (1/10).
