Global Fund chair: Development aid should not be about figures, but about people

?Indonesia is one of the developing countries which will soon stop receiving much of its development aid from the international society's programmes, as the country is now seen as a middle-income country. However, there are huge inequalities and millions of poor people still in countries like Indonesia so policymakers should stop looking at the figures and instead focus on the people, says Nafsiah Mboi.
