On September 16 in Montreal, Canada, the international community will come together to pledge resources to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria for the next three years. This is the first big test of the world’s commitment to the new Global Goals. Ambitious pledges from donors such as the UK will enable the Global Fund to really get moving on reaching the aim of ending these three epidemics by 2030.
In December, the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria set out an Investment Case for its fifth replenishment, calling for donors to contribute US $13 billion for the period 2017-19. This investment is required to save eight million lives, bringing the total lives saved to 30 million by 2019, and is urgently required if we are to meet Sustainable Development Goal 3.3 in line with global plans to end AIDS, TB and malaria. There will be a final pledging conference in autumn 2016, and RESULTS and our global partners will push for the $13 billion funding request to be met.
