Civil society calls on the European Commission to pledge €580 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB & Malaria

GHA, alongside AIDSfonds and Global Fund Advocates Network, have asked the European Commission to pledge €580m to replenish the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria before the EU elections of May 2019. One of the best performing global initiatives, since 2002, the Global Fund has already saved 27 million lives. The EU played a crucial role in the establishment of the Global Fund and must now act as a leader on the international stage by committing to the replenishment of the fund for the period 2020-2022. In order to end HIV, TB and Malaria and reach the SDGs, civil society estimates that current pledges need to be increased by 22%, bringing the EU’s fair share to €580 million. In the past, Commissioner Mimica has been a strong supporter of the Global Fund, championing the EU’s responsibility to meet their Agenda 2030 obligations.
