Lesotho’s HIV ‘Expert Patient’ Program Suffering Funding Shortfalls

Deutsche Welle: Cutbacks threaten Lesotho’s HIV sufferers
“… Around half of Lesotho’s expert patients [who fill the gap between doctors and their patients] are funded directly by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Now, due to contribution shortfalls from donor countries, support from the Global Fund for the expert patient program is being reduced…” (Geoghegan, 3/7).
