France Hosts 6th Replenishment Conference Of Global Fund, Calls On Donors To Contribute To End Pandemics By 2030
France Diplomatie: France is hosting the Sixth Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (9-10 October 2019, Lyon)
“…The Sixth Replenishment Conference, which will take place on 9 and 10 October in Lyon, aims to raise as much as possible to fund this fight for the next three years. The aim is to gather more money than during the last funding conference in 2016 ($12.2 billion). This money will allow the Global Fund to support affected countries and populations with a view to saving 16 million lives, preventing 234 million new infections, and continuing to finance innovations and improvements for health systems. … By ensuring that donors increase or make new contributions, and by ensuring that more national resources are leveraged for health, France and the international community can take decisive action against the AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria pandemics, in order to eliminate them completely by 2030” (10/8).
