Britain Gives Burma More Than 15 Million Dollars To Fight HIV/AIDS - 2003-04-28


Britain says it will give Burma 15.7 million dollars to fight HIV/ AIDS.

British officials say the money will be used for prevention and care programs administered through the United Nations, non-governmental organizations and the Burmese government.

The British ambassador to Burma (Vicky Bowman) said her government believes early action is needed to fight HIV / AIDS. The ambassador says the UN-AIDS agency has named Burma as one of its three highest priority countries in South East Asia.

Burma's Health Ministry says there are 180,000 people living with HIV/AIDS, while UN-AIDS estimates that between 170,000 and 420,000 people are infected with the disease.
