Global Fund Official Says Global Economic Downturn Affecting Resource Mobilization

ABC Radio Australia’s “Connect Asia” features an interview with Christophe Benn, director of external relations for the Global Fund to Fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Benn said “it has become much more difficult to mobilize resources” since the 2008-09 economic downturn and “a great deal of mobilization, both of public and private donors” is needed to maintain ongoing projects that receive donations from the Global Fund (Cochrane, 8/23).
