The U.S. pledged $4.3 billion for the last three-year funding cycle in 2016. In a letter … the senators note: ‘…Given the Global Fund’s impressive results and the continuing, urgent priority to save lives and end three of the major infectious disease killers in the world, we believe the United States should make a 6th Replenishment pledge for 2020-2022 that exceeds the last Replenishment’…” (10/11).
