Global Fund Resumes AIDS Funding Grants to China
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has lifted its freeze on distributing funds to China that resulted from a dispute over suspected misuse of funds, The Associated Press reports. In November 2010 the Global Fund froze a $283 million AIDS grant because Chinese government agencies were channeling too small a share of the funds to grassroots organizations. The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention will set up a separate group to manage all funding that is allocated to civil society groups. Since 2003, the Global Fund has given $570 million in grants to China.
