Donors pledged over US$12.9 billion for the next three years at the launch of the Global Fund’s Fifth Replenishment in an extraordinary tribute to partnership and collective determination to end HIV, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics and transform the lives of millions.

Hosted by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the two-day event in Montréal displayed a spirit of optimism for the future as leaders from every corner of the world, governments, civil society, the private sector, and people affected by HIV, tuberculosis and malaria came together to build a more perfect world.

The Replenishment Conference, which benefited from the participation of several heads of governments, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among others, raised nearly $1 billion more than the previous replenishment conference in 2013. Several donors significantly increased pledges, many new partners pledged for the first time, and private sector contributions more than doubled.

“We can end these epidemics for good, if we accelerate our efforts and continue to bring in new partners,” said Prime Minister Trudeau, summing up the mood of the conference.

Speaker after speaker echoed the ideals that led to the founding of the Global Fund and the need to work across borders, empower women and girls and break down barriers that prevent people from accessing lifesaving health care.

In celebration of the power of the world coming together for global health and youth engagement, the conference will be followed by the Global Citizen Concert to End AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria with Usher, The Roots, Half Moon Run, Metric, Grimes and Charlotte Cardin.
