The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
"The Global Fund partnership was created to defeat HIV, TB and malaria and ensure a healthier, safer, more equitable world for all. We raise and invest more than US$4 billion a year in programs run by local experts to fight the deadliest infectious diseases and strengthen the health and community systems and increase pandemic preparedness in 100+ countries. We unite world leaders, communities, civil society, health workers and the private sector to find out what works and take it to scale – so the world makes more progress, more rapidly in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria."
Since the Global Fund was founded in 2002:
The Global Fund partnership has saved 50 million lives
AIDS-related deaths have been reduced by 70% and new infections have been reduced by 54% in countries where the Global Fund invests.
In countries where the Global Fund invests, TB deaths have dropped by 21%. Without these interventions, TB deaths would have increased by 121% in the same period.
In countries where the Global Fund invests, the incidence rate of malaria has declined by 28% and the mortality rate by 47% since 2002.
