Oxfam Briefing Paper 24

Abstract

"Developing countries are facing a health crisis made worse by the enormous impact of HIV/AIDS: 40 million people are now estimated to be HIV positive. The Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB, and Malaria represents an unprecedented opportunity for the international community to respond to this crisis. However, it is facing serious challenges regarding its funding and management, and its capacity to mount an effective and efficient response to the three diseases. This paper highlights these issues and makes recommendations which will help to ensure the delivery of equitable health services to poor women, men, and children."
