AIDS Foundation Demands $1 Billion from China

Protestors across the globe are demanding China donate more resources towards the fight against AIDS. 

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation will lead a series of protests demanding China step up its involvement in the global fight against AIDS by pledging one billion dollars to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

The protests will take place between October 23 and October 25 in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington DC and consulates in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Houston.

Protests are also expected in a dozen other countries throughout Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

The Global Fund program was founded in 2002 to provide financial assistance to countries lacking the resources to fight diseases.

China, which has the world's second largest economy, has donated $25 million since 2002. Other countries with smaller economies have greatly surpassed China's donations to fight AIDS -- Japan and Germany have jointly contributed over $3.5 billion in the last decade.

AHF organized similar protests targeting China in 2010. The Foundation currently provides medical care and services to individuals in 31 countries worldwide.
