UNAIDS chief supports Robin Hood Tax

22 Jul 2010, by in International

At the International AIDS Conference in Vienna this week, Michel Sidibe, Executive Director of UNAIDS, the joint UN programme on HIV/AIDS, has called for a Robin Hood Tax to raise money for causes like the eradication of HIV/AIDS. He said:

“The financial crisis should not be an excuse to flat-line or scale back. In fact, it is an opportunity for new sources of funding, like a levy on global financial transactions – a Robin Hood tax.”
