The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is urging countries in the region to seize the opportunity to expand their healthcare infrastructure by bidding for a share of the US$3.36bn Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and malaria. PAHO has pledged to help countries implement programmes aimed at supporting infrastructure development, billing the Global Fund as an opportunity not to be missed. "This is our challenge now," says PAHO, which already helps to prepare technical proposals in this area. Chile is among the latest beneficiaries of the Fund, after being awarded US$38m over five years to adopt measures aimed at preventing the spread of the HIV virus.
