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.

The amount of support we have seen on our 10th anniversary has been overwhelming. Last week, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Bill Gates announced an incredibly impactful contribution of $750 million at a morning press conference, and in the evening stood in a room packed full of politicians, activists, and celebrities, and explained why he believes in the work of the Global Fund.
But Bill Gates is not alone in voicing his support for the Global Fund during our 10th anniversary. These portraits, taken by award-winning photographer Adrian Steirn, are of some of our closest friends, who have come together, along with people from all across the globe who have submitted their own photos, to celebrate 10 years of Global Fund impact, by showing their personal wish for the fight against the three diseases.

Much more to come soon!
