Huffington Post: Globally United To #EndItForGood
James Whiting, executive director of Malaria No More U.K.

“…We are delighted by Secretary of State for International Development Priti Patel’s announcement of the U.K.’s commitment of £1.1billion to the Global Fund, which she described as ‘one of the world’s most effective aid instruments.’ … U.K. leadership and investment has been a critical driver of progress against malaria to date and will be central to determining the future trajectory of this disease. … With the increased funding pledged over the weekend, the Global Fund can build sustainable programs for the treatment and prevention of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
