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.

The Blueprint is based on the principle that scientific advances and their successful implementation have brought the world to a tipping point in the fight against AIDS. “By making smart investments based on sound science, and a shared global responsibility, we can save millions of lives and achieve an AIDS-free generation,” it states.
