In 2000, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria appeared to be unstoppable. The world fought back. As a partnership of governments, the private sector, civil society and people affected by the diseases, the Global Fund pooled the world’s resources to invest strategically in programs to end AIDS, TB and malaria as epidemics. It is working.
The Global Fund partnership supports programs that have saved more than 22 million lives as of 2016.
We can’t stop now. We need to accelerate our efforts to build on this amazing progress and prevent a resurgence of the diseases. Our partnership has set performance targets for the Global Fund Strategy 2017-2022. Programs supported by the Global Fund will save 14 million lives in the three-year period beginning in 2017, bringing the total lives saved by the Global Fund partnership to 36 million by the end of 2019. Those programs will also avert up to 194 million new infections or cases of HIV, TB and malaria.
