The World AIDS Confrence in Vienna has entered its final day. And funding for the global efforts to curb the epidemic remains a hotly-debated topic.
Activists are pressuring rich countries to give more money for the fight against AIDS. The key issue is the financing of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The fund provides major support for AIDS programs around the world. Donors meet in October to decide on the fund's financing level for the next three years.
The activists from different countries and organizations said that under funding would result in deaths and jeopardize progress in the developing world. Programs financed by the Global Fund provided anti-retroviral treatment to 2.5 million people at the end of 2009.
