Thomson Reuters Foundation: Singer Annie Lennox urges governments to step up funding for AIDS, malaria, and TB
“Ending some of the world’s deadliest diseases is within reach but only if donor governments dig deeper into their pockets to fund the fight against AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, singer and activist Annie Lennox said on Tuesday. Lennox was among activists calling on Britain to pledge 1.2 billion pounds ($1.58 billion) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria ahead of its summit in September to urge governments to commit more money to fighting the diseases…” (Zweynert, 7/12).
