The Global Fund made its case to world leaders in Davos during the World Economic Forum annual meeting, 22-27 January 2013. Each year, the World Economic Forum gathers global decision-makers and thought leaders in this Swiss village to meet, share ideas and highlight issues of worldwide importance.
As a partner organization, the Global Fund organized several events during the week.
On Tuesday 22 January, Charlize Theron posed for her Big Push portrait, in aid of the Global Fund’s efforts to rally support for a Big Push to achieve global health goals which have long seemed impossible but which are now, for the first time, within reach. Ms. Theron was honored with the Crystal Award, given each year to an artist who uses their talent to improve the state of the world for the work of her foundation, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which supports community organizations that help keep African youth safe from HIV.
Her portrait session signaled the opening of the Global Fund’s photo booth. Throughout the conference, participants were able their portrait taken holding key messages. These portraits were then added in support of the Big Push campaign both at Davos and on the Huffington Post website.
On Wednesday, 23 January, there was a reception at the Kirchner Museum, co-hosted by Ms. Theron and Mr. Muhtar Kent, CEO of Coca-Cola. The reception was an.opportunity for the Global Fund’s new Executive Director, Mark Dybul, to meet with global leaders, decision-makers and influencers, and to showcase the progress made in the arena of global health in recent years – as well as how much remains to be done.
A press conference was held on the afternoon of Thursday 24 January with Dr Dybul, Bill Gates and Minister Dirk Niebel of Germany. During the press conference, Minister Niebel announced a EUR 1 billion (approximately US$ 1.3 billion) pledge to the Global Fund for the period 2012-2016.
On Thursday evening a small private dinner was held to give key supporters an opportunity to meet one-on-one with Dr Dybul and to discuss the Global Fund’s future financing needs.
