‘People-Driven’ Strategy Critical To Ending AIDS, TB, Malaria By 2030

Thomson Reuters Foundation: A people-driven plan to end epidemics
Anita Asiimwe and David Stevenson, former Global Fund board members

“…With ending the three epidemics by 2030 as an agreed goal, sustainability of Global Fund support is essential, so the [Global Fund] strategy considers resilient and sustainable systems for health as the foundation for success. … To achieve greater progress, the partnership must be more innovative in investing in a diverse landscape. … [W]e have emphasized the benefit of putting communities and countries first … The strategy’s aspirations will come to naught if there are not enough resources to implement it. … We believe that having a map and the means to get to a destination is crucial, but more important is being able to put the roadmap and the resources to good use. Just as we reached out to diverse groups for inputs into the strategy, we will need them to deliver on its implementation. We started with a people-driven process of producing the strategy and we must now act together as a stronger partnership until we end the diseases for good” (6/9).
