MP dissatisfied with Global Fund’s allocation of money to “gays and prostitutes"

Deputy from SDPK parliamentary faction Anvar Artykov is dissatisfied with allocation of money by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to «gays and prostitutes.»

Deputy Minister of Health Oleg Gorin said that the Ministry of Health doesn’t distribute money of the Global Fund. This is done by the Country Committee, which is presented by a number of public associations.

The deputy was outraged that money of the Global Fund is distributed among non-governmental organizations.

Money is spent on gay men and prostitutes. According to reports, the money is used for coffee breaks and training, which have no relation to medicine. Show us a cooperation agreement with the Global Fund. We have to revise it.
