The Seventh Conference of the Global Fund to Fight HIV, Malaria and Tuberculosis was held from Sunday 18 to Tuesday 21 September in New York for replenishment purposes.
The objective of the institution was to raise 18 billion over the next three years which will be used to finance health actions in low- and middle-income countries where populations are most exposed to the three diseases.
Programs supported by the Global Fund to Fight HIV, Malaria and Tuberculosis over the past 20 years have saved 50 million lives.
With the Covid pandemic in 2019 slowing the implementation of its programs, the challenge of eradicating these three diseases by 2030 seems out of reach.
Only $14.2 billion was raised instead of 18 billion by the global fund to fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
