Nigerian $10m pledge marks AIDS, TB (tuberculosis) plight:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Nigeria has made a second US$10m donation to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, making it the largest contributor among countries eligible for the Fund's grants. Nigeria has actually received 10 times the funding that it has donated, with grants totalling $201m. This can only hint at the seriousness of Nigeria's malaria and TB situations, while "facing a potentially catastrophic HIV/AIDS epidemic", says the Global Fund. President Obasanjo's personal influence over the pledge was praised as an example to wealthier nations of global solidarity.
