Funding and HIV/AIDS discussed in Sweden

Swedish government officials held talks on Wednesday with UNAIDS about global efforts to tackle the spread of HIV/AIDS.

According to Agence France-Presse, Sweden will be increasing its support to UNAIDS in 2006 by US $6.45 million, to a total of $25.8 million.

The Scandanavian nation placed HIV/AIDS, as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights at the top of its development agenda in 2003.

Sweden will take over the rotating chairmanship of the UNAIDS board from Brazil in April.
