The Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria

Published: 2 May 2006

14,000 people become HIV positive every day. The Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB, and Malaria was set up to tackle the health crisis caused by these three diseases in developing countries. But it requires massive and long-term donor funding, a transparent and equitable system of service delivery, and commitment to comprehensive programmes of prevention, treatment, and care (which include the use of generic medicines) if better health is to become a reality for the millions of women, men, and children already infected and affected by these illnesses.
