Huge boost for Aids programme

By Khanyisa Tabata

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe says over the next five years, South Africa will have an additional 800-million-Rand to fund the activities of the National Aids Council.

Following a Sanac plenary meeting, Motlanthe announced that South Africa’s application for funding from the Board of the Global Fund for HIV, TB and Malaria had been successful.

South Africa’s two previous proposals were not successful.

Motlanthe says the additional funding comes at the right time, as the council scales up its interventions in a difficult fiscal environment.
