US$14 Billion to Step Up the Fight Against the Epidemics

The Global Fund / Nicolas Rodet

World leaders, civil society leaders, CEOs, activists, philanthropists, advocates and people affected by HIV, TB and malaria gathered in Lyon, France in October 2019 to make a decision. Do we step up the fight against these diseases, or do we allow ourselves to slip back?

The world stepped up.

In an unprecedented show of global solidarity, donors at the Global Fund's Sixth Replenishment Conference pledged US$14.02 billion for the next three years – the largest amount ever raised for a multilateral health organization, and the largest amount by the Global Fund. The funds will help save 16 million lives and end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria by 2030.

President Emmanuel Macron of France electrified the conference with a stirring appeal to deliver the next generation a better and healthier world, fighting inequality and strengthening social justice. President Macron called on all partners to increase their commitments by at least 15% in order to reach the target of at least US$14 billion, and during the pledging session that followed, donors answered that urgent call to step up the fight – many making last-minute increases on top of their original pledges.
