With Waning Donor Support, Some Ghanaians Lack Access To HIV Medications

Deutsche Welle: Ghanaians still struggle under the weight of HIV/AIDS
“…Previously, almost the entire budget for the management of HIV/AIDS in Ghana was funded by donor agencies, including the Global Fund. But since the country declared its middle income status, donor support has waned. Providing testing kits and drugs is now a challenge. HIV patients are struggling to get adequate drugs to manage their conditions. … The Ghana AIDS Commission, the agency responsible for the management of HIV/AIDS cases in Ghana, has begun lobbying the private sector for financial support…” (Suuk, 5/4).
