Sachs Discusses Efforts To Replenish Global Fund

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog provides highlights of a meeting hosted by the Friends of the Global Fight on Wednesday, where Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and special adviser to the U.N. Secretary-General on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), spoke about replenishment for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. “Sachs said the Global Fund aims to raise $15 billion for life-saving interventions for the most poor from 2014 to 2016, which means countries need to pledge at a minimum $5 billion per year for the next three years — a paltry sum compared to the billions given in bonuses to Wall Street every year and spent on global wars, he said,” the blog writes (Aziz, 10/30).
