Africa Shortchanged: The Global Fund and G8 Agenda

Behind the Numbers Series by Marc Lee

Marc Lee’s article Africa Shortchanged: The Global Fund and G8 Agenda precedes the expected unveiling of a plan for African development at the 2002 G8 leaders meeting. Lee argues it is far from clear that Africa needs a new plan for development. Instead, he asserts, the G8 leaders should commit to fighting preventable diseases through the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. These diseases carry tremendous economic costs, Lee continues, and fighting them is the best assistance Africa could receive. However, Lee concludes, what is missing is the political will to make these contributions.
