A ‘must-read’ for all of us that has largely gone unnoticed

In January, the US Congress appropriated $547 million to be given to the Global Fund during 2004, on condition that the amount given by the US does not exceed 33% of all donations made this year. It now seems unlikely that contributions from non-US donors will be enough to permit the US to hand over its full $547 m. pledge.
