Obama right about Canada
With all the tragedy that is happening globally, it’s hard to think of the good things that are happening globally. Canada is playing a role in the good things. The Global Fund is an organization of more than 50 donor countries, of which Canada is one, working to eliminate malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. Replenishment of monies to the Global Fund is required every three years so that implementing countries have the time and guarantee of funding to plan effectively. Not only has Canada stepped in with a $785 million donation, but we are hosting the Global Fund Replenishment Conference in Montreal in September and the world will come. When Barack Obama said the world could use more Canada, this is part of what he meant. Bravo Canada!
