US Increases Donation to Health Fund

The US Congress announced yesterday that they will donate $900 million to the United Nations-backed Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. This $60 million increase from last year's donation is the US' biggest pledge yet to the fund, sending a message to other countries about the importance of investing in people's health globally even in times of financial instability.
