    Q: Why was the World Bank so scathing of the HIV/AIDS secretariat? A: We did not adequately establish the institutional arrangements that enabled effective absorption of funds of that size when the loan of US $59.7 million was secured two years back. Institutionally, we did not have that capacity to deal with the funds that came to the country. The absorption of funds of this size was strange for us.

    President Bush's new $15 billion initiative to fight AIDS globally includes the largest amount ever, American or otherwise, devoted to treatment of those infected with the disease in the poor world, US officials said yesterday.

    African leaders are now fine-tuning an ambitious development initiative known as New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD).

  • Dec 2, Washington Post: An AIDS Policy That Would Add Up

    Bush should point out that the biggest obstacle in the AIDS battle is not actually a lack of money. It is that money can be hard to spend.

The more that people understand that AIDS is not only a preventable disease but a treatable one, the less they will shun those who have it. And as more and more people are able to live with AIDS, their presence in families, workplaces and neighborhoods will help to reduce fears and misconceptions about the disease.

At stake here is the lives of countless numbers of young people and adolescents in the city who are undoubtedly the cornerstones of development and the country's hopes for the future.

  • Nov 8, Addis Tribune: A Proposal for War

    So, it is clear that currently, AIDS stands as the number one public enemy Ethiopia faces. Given our tendency to boast and talk about how courageous and incentive we are when it comes to defending our country; one would think people would descend on this killer with vengeance. Although, there has been some incredible work done by some amazing individuals and organizations, the response from citizens is still on the cool side when compared to the ferocity of the disease itself. It is especially disappointing to see people promote destructive political agendas even while the very people they say they care about are teetering towards a calamity of unknown heights.

  • July 5, Addis Tribune: The New Geography of HIV/AIDS

    The new geography of HIV/AIDS demands a new understanding of the complex interactions of poverty and HIV/AIDS. This new understanding must include the exercise of caution when advocating for methods borrowed from experiences elsewhere. Unfortunately, the caution also extends to drug therapies that may give relief to suffering patients. The global response should recognize the complexity of the pandemic in poverty-stricken nations. Most of all, the global response should seek alternatives to attempts to employ measures that showed success in the developed world only after decades of intensive education, extensive organzation of care centers, highly selective, and closely monitored clinical trials.
