US Senators Ask Global Fund to Cease Money for Burma - 2004-10-05


Three U.S. senators have asked the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria to cease its funding for Burma because, they say, the military government is responsible for its humanitarian crisis.

Republicans Sam Brownback, Judd Gregg, and Mitch McConnell released a statement Tuesday saying they have asked the Global Fund to see that funding to Burma is ceased and to find out how an original donation -- 2.4 million dollars -- was spent.

The senators say Rangoon is responsible for rising HIV infection rates, a weak economy, high poverty levels, and oppressive government.

The senators say they are also concerned about other nations receiving Global Fund help, including Sudan, Cuba, and North Korea, that are designated by the United States as state sponsors of terrorism.
