Thanking Japan For Its Commitment To The Global Fund

In a post in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria’s blog, Global Fund Executive Director Mark Dybul notes “[t]he contribution Japan made in 2012 was the highest annual amount that the country had made in 10 years of remarkable support to the fight against HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria through the Global Fund.” He writes, “[Japan’s] commitment highlighted a fundamental human trait: that we give, not because we have excess, but because we recognize that by sharing what we have, we can transform the lives of many even as we enrich ours with the fulfillment that comes with giving.” Dybul continues, “We have a historic opportunity to get HIV, tuberculosis and malaria under control. We are immensely grateful to the Japanese people for the role they have played towards this end” (3/8).
