Russia and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis have signed a funding agreement worth $34.2m over a first two-year phase of an HIV/AIDS programme. The grant will seek a 10-fold increase in the approximately 1,500 patients being treated across the seven regions worst affected by the condition. In the second year, it will be extended to 14 regions, with the aim of treating 75,000 patients. It is the second such grant in as many years. The Global Fund has so far disbursed $22.3m of a $31.6m grant signed in October 2003.
