Private Sector, Governments, Citizens Can Do More To Support Global Fund, Help End AIDS, TB, Malaria, Opinion Piece Says

Devex: Opinion: Continuing the fight against AIDS, TB, and malaria
Ted Turner, entrepreneur and philanthropist

“…The work of the Global Fund has changed the landscape when it comes to AIDS, TB, and malaria … Because of public and private sector partners uniting to take a stand, the Global Fund partnership has saved nearly 32 million lives and reduced the number of deaths caused by these three diseases by 40% in countries where the Global Fund invests its support. … On Oct. 10 in Lyon, France, many countries and private sector partners stood up for progress, pledging more than $14 billion for the Global Fund’s work over the next three years. While these pledges are very important, they are not enough. All of us, especially engaged citizens like you and me, need to keep raising our voices to make sure that the fight against AIDS, TB, and malaria remains a priority on the global agenda. … I call on private sector partners, country governments, and global citizens to help us all deliver on our promise for a better world” (10/22).
