Continued Investments Critical To Ending HIV, TB, Malaria Epidemics
Thomson Reuters Foundation: Battle against HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria at tipping point
Mark Dybul, executive director of the Global Fund
“…The next three to five years will determine if we are the generation to end [the HIV, TB, and malaria] epidemics, or if we will pass them on for generations to come. But scientific breakthroughs and better health policy alone will not win the day. … We must embrace those who are different from us — who are ‘other’ — and create the inclusive human family we are meant to be. … Together, through the programs we support, 20 million lives have been saved and many millions more have been improved. Later this month when leaders meet in Montreal to replenish the Global Fund for the next three years, they have an opportunity to give future generations a world free from the epidemics of AIDS, TB, and malaria. The decisions is ours. We can end it. For good” (9/1).
