The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded the Center for Global Health Policy a grant supplement that will fund the Center’s activities through the end of November 2011. The grant includes funding for the Center to host another set of congressional delegates on a tour of U.S.-supported HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis (TB) programs in Africa this summer (see September 2010 IDSA News). These trips give congressional staff members a firsthand view of the important strides these programs are making and the areas where additional support is needed.
The Center was created by IDSA and HIVMA in 2008 to support and promote U.S. efforts to combat HIV/AIDS and TB around the world (see March 2011 IDSA News). To learn more about the Center and how you can get involved, please visit www.idsaglobalhealth.org and the Center’s blog, Science Speaks.
