    Canada is pledging an additional $785 million over three years to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in Ottawa today.

    Trudeau said the new financial commitment represents a 20 per cent increase from Canada's previous contribution level.

    The prime minister made the announcements during a town hall on global health.

    "Thankfully," Trudeau said, "organizations like the Global Fund exist to make a real difference. It works hard each and every day to deliver help to those who need it most."

    So, once again, Canadian ME patients are forgotten.

    Huffington Post has an article on this same issue. Comments are welcome. It's now up to 89.

    There's at least one comment about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

    "The commitments we've announced today will help vulnerable citizens live better lives. Lives that are longer, healthier and free from the burden of disease."
    Where's the funding (treatment and research) for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Mr. Prime Minister? When will you ease their burden of disease?

    Probably gluten enriched cake. Is that only in the French speaking areas?
