Established as a partnership in global health, the Global Fund works closely with a wide diversity of partners –implementing governments, donors, civil society, international development organizations, the private sector and communities living with and affected by the diseases. This partnership model actively supports country-owned approaches that develop and implement effective, evidence-based programs to respond to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

Today we have warmly welcomed the announcement that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation strengthened their commitment to the Global Fund through a US$ 750 million promissory note.
Mr. Gates couldn’t have stated it any better: "These are tough economic times, but that is no excuse for cutting aid to the world's poorest. The Global Fund is one of the most effective ways we invest our money every year."
We are truly thankful to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for their continued commitment to global health and the Global Fund.
And to continue our 10th anniversary celebration, we have launched today a powerful short film created by award-winning photographer and filmmaker Adrian Steirn, which includes international figures who played a major role in the Global Fund’s first ten years.
Filmed on four continents, the film includes Zackie Achmat, Tony Blair, Bono, Bill Clinton, Gro-Harlem Brundtland, Bill Gates, Dr Milly Katana, Mphu Ramatlapeng, Jeffrey Sachs and Yoshiro Mori.
Do not miss the opportunity to watch it and share it from our Global Fund YouTube page.
