Global Fund, U.S. Bilateral Programs Essential Partners, Continue To Make Progress With Congressional Support
Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria: U.S. Bilateral Programs and the Global Fund: Partnering to Amplify Impact
“America’s continued leadership in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria has helped save millions of lives. Thanks to bipartisan support for both the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and U.S. bilateral programs — including the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), and the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) TB Program — American investments are driving progress on the path to end these epidemics, as well [as] encouraging contributions from other donors and affected countries. … The U.S. bilateral programs and the Global Fund are essential catalysts in the global fight against AIDS, TB, and malaria — both necessary, coordinated, and reinforcing. The dynamic nature of their close partnership model allows them to adapt as the disease landscape changes from country to country. With continued congressional support, PEPFAR, PMI, the USAID TB program, and the Global Fund are enhancing each other’s work and saving millions of lives worldwide” (3/4).
