The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria began in 2002. Recently, international donors gave almost $12 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB), and Malaria.

This is the largest donation the Global Fund has ever received.

Stefan Emblad of the Global Fund is pleased. These are difficult economic times. The donation is 20% higher than before, but the Fund needs a billion dollars more to fight these diseases.

The Global Fund is a partnership of public and private organizations. The Fund is the main source of money for programs to treat and prevent AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Donations support programs in more than 140 countries.

Global Fund programs treat nearly three million people for AIDS. 143 million receive malaria drugs. Seven million people receive tuberculosis treatment. The Global Fund has saved over five million lives.

Stefan Emblad says they won’t be cutting funding to their programs.

The United States promised to give $4 billion over the next three years, the largest gift ever. The United States was the first donor to the fund and is the largest. France is second. Japan, Britain and Canada are in the top five.
