Five francophone nations – France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Canada – have been solid supporters since 2002, working to defeat diseases that once seemed unstoppable.

The impact is unmistakable. More than 2 million lives have been saved in 28 francophone countries through Global-Fund supported programs, helping families from the Caribbean to West and Central Africa to Southeast Asia.
