Federal HIV project Harper signed with Bill Gates fizzled soon after: report

OTTAWA - A $139-million project to fight HIV-AIDS, launched by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in a glitzy photo-op with Microsoft's Bill Gates, began to founder within months, says an internal report.

Red tape and turf wars choked off the flow of money, and a vaunted plan to build a vaccine plant inCanada was effectively sidelined within a year, suggests the newly released analysis.

"Very significant delays ... have put into question the extent to which the initiative can achieve the expected results within the remaining time frame," says the report, completed last August for the Public Health Agency of Canada.
