This article was originally published in Clinica
Germany has pledged euro82m ($108m) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in 2005. The announcement made by the economic co-operation and development minister, Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul, to mark World AIDS Day, makes Germany the Global Fund's fourth-largest donor in 2005, after the US, France and Italy, who have also each pledged over $100m. It more than doubles Germany's 2004 commitment ($38m) and comes in the wake of euroE7m pledge to support AIDS initiatives in China, with a further euro42m going to new healthcare infrastructure projects.
