In November came the news that the Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and Malaria was in a financial crisis, because of declining donor commitments and failure by donors to honor existing commitments. The Fund’s board cancelled Round 11 of its funding applications, which was supposed to provide money for 2011 to 2013.
As part of a series of year-end posts–we’re taking a break from Friday, December 23, till January 5, 2012, we’re hoping to post 10 “Lists of 10” this week. (We’re trying to be cool by calling it “10×10”). So two lists per day. Orlando Reade, who blogs for us from London, starts us of with his list of 10 photographers to watch in 2012. He’s picked five African artists and five Europeans who have been working in Africa.
