Protests at the International AIDS Conference

Though this is a little late, it made headlines, so I thought it would be worthwhile to post it.

AIDS activists, such as HealthGAP, Global Fund Advocates Network, and Stop AIDS Campaign UK, and treatment providers, including MSF, took over a panel discussion on the future of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria at the International AIDS Conference. The groups protested against efforts to cap funding for countries rather than continue to accept ambitious grant proposals from countries hit hardest by the AIDS epidemic.

MSF joined thousands of protesters at the International AIDS Conference in Washington DC, calling for governments and pharmaceutical companies to halt policies and practices that hamper access to medicines.
