In 2019 the Global Fund called on the world to step up the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. We released our Investment Case and launched the Sixth Replenishment to raise at least US$14 billion to help save 16 million lives, avert 234 million infections and help the world get back on track to end these diseases.
Our Investment Case outlined what the Global Fund partnership can achieve with the target US$14 billion for the three-year cycle beginning in 2020.
The Global Fund will contribute to achieving these results alongside sustained levels of other external funding, scaled-up domestic financing, and more innovation, collaboration and rigorous execution.
While today’s adults are leaving the next generation with a long to-do list, we made a promise to 7-year-olds everywhere to do everything we can to end AIDS, TB and malaria by 2030, so they don’t have to. More than 100,000 people signed our open letter to 7-year-olds around the world – the group that turns 18 in 2030.
The fight against HIV, TB and malaria has many faces. They span ages and geographies and gender. Their diversity shows us that these diseases don’t affect one “type” of person. We can all see ourselves in these champions – in their challenges, their hopes and their strength.
