World Aids Day: Obama in $50m Aids funding boost

The US is making $50m (£32m) of new funding available for HIV/Aids clinics and drug assistance schemes, President Barack Obama has said.

"This fight isn't over," Mr Obama said. "Not for the 1.2m Americans who are living with HIV right now."

Mr Obama also pledged to increase access to antiretrovirals in hardest-hit countries by the end of 2013.

The World Aids Day announcement comes as a report shows that global funding for HIV programmes fell in 2010.
