$3bn funding gap in Zim‟s HIV response programmes
By tinomuda chakanyuka
ZIMBABWE may experience a funding deficit of about $3 billion in its HIV response programmes in the
next decade if the prevailing funding levels and commitment from donor partners do not improve, an
expert has warned.
The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids (UNAIDS) country director in Zimbabwe, Mr
Micheal Bartos, told Sunday News last week that close to $7 billion was needed to fund the country‟s
HIV response programmes next year to 2025, if the present cost structures are maintained.
