27 million lives saved
The impact of investments in health can be measured in many ways, and one of the most important measures is how many lives are saved. Health programs supported by the Global Fund partnership have saved 27 million lives as of the end of 2017.
Credit for this achievement is shared by policymakers and activists, scientists and community health workers, donors, drug makers and many more partners. Overall, the number of deaths caused by AIDS, TB and malaria each year has been reduced by one-third since 2002 in countries where the Global Fund invests.
