UN development agency teams with global fund to fight AIDS in Argentina

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has signed an agreement with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which will provide $12 million to fight AIDS in Argentina over the next two years.

According to the agreement signed yesterday in Buenos Aires, the funds will support Argentina's strategic plan to fight HIV/AIDS, including preventive measures, as well as guaranteeing the availability of antiretroviral drugs through the country's health care system.

Last week in Honduras, UNDP announced that the Global Fund allocated $2 million for that country's anti-AIDS efforts, with the possibility of another $40 million grant for the coming four years.
