Huffington Post: Why Every Dollar Counts for Global Health
Deborah Derrick, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

“…With an eye toward continued success under the SDGs, the Global Fund’s upcoming replenishment in 2016 is crucial. These ambitious goals aim to accomplish a broad spectrum of worthy achievements, but many of those achievements will prove elusive unless they can be carried out by healthy populations. It will be more important than ever to call attention and resources to global health amid so many priorities. Every dollar in the 2016 replenishment will count in the Global Fund’s efforts to create a healthy environment, which in turn will serve as a building block for so many other improvements to our society” (9/22).
