We warmly welcome the latest news from Washington DC where donors at the Global Fund’s Fourth Replenishment pledged $12 billion for the next three years, the largest amount ever committed to their fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
The UK pledged its historic support of £1 billion to the Fund in September and has since been encouraging others to step up their support. The Prime Minister in a video broadcast to the event this week highlighted the life-changing difference that we could make in defeating these diseases. “We have the tools, we have the knowledge. Now what is needed more than ever is political commitment and your ambitious pledges. So let’s get to it.”
