"The recent arrest of Zambian HIV treatment and human rights advocate Paul Kasonkomona for only talking about legal barriers to HIV and other health services for Zambians who are prisoners, sex workers or members of sexual minorities, raises the question of how those barriers can be addressed by the country's board charged with distributing money from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria" -- the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM), the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog writes. "Recently, two reports released by AIDS Accountability International, a Sweden and South Africa-based non-profit that examines AIDS responses, said [CCMs] could hold both the challenges to sound health responses, and the solutions," the blog notes and summarizes the reports (Barton, 4/18).
