UNAIDS announced on Tuesday historic decisions by Senegal and the Republic of the Congo, the first African states to do so, to contribute financially to UNAIDS. The decisions follow the 2012 African Union Roadmap on Shared Responsibility and Global Solidarity that entails African-owned solutions to AIDS and other diseases.
The Roadmap calls on African states and international partners to jointly finance the funding gap and includes the designation of role and responsibilities of the various stakeholders. The Executive Director of UNAIDS said the decisions of Senegal and Congo demonstrated Africa’s leadership in the global AIDS response and called for further contributions by African countries.
