GFAN members Friends of the Global Fund Europe and Osservatorio AiDS, in collaboration with AIDOS, and the theatre company Bluestocking, launched, earlier this month, a short video highlighting the most common stereotypes on HIV/AIDS in Italy. The video uses ironic messages to shape the audiences’ understanding of the portrayed clichés and highlight the critical role of the Global Fund in addressing the global reach of AIDS. Many of the stereotypes portrayed in the video are common in other countries and they wanted to share a version with English subtitles of their video.
The video was initially launched in Italy on World AIDS Day. Two similar videos on tuberculosis and malaria will be released in the upcoming months.
The video is part of a joint information campaign to make the Global Fund better known in Italy ahead of the next replenishment.
On December 1, World AIDS Day, world leaders are gathering in Argentina for the G20 meeting. This campaign is aimed at putting global health on the minds of these leaders as they meet. We are calling on them to support global health by signing on to the declaration supporting a 2019 replenishment of the Global Fund.
We are encouraging you to reach out to your G20 elected officials, champions in Parliament and those in respective Ministries or Heads of State (HoS) and call for the insertion of language supporting the Global Fund in the G20 declaration. To find out which countries and HoS are part of the G20 please visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G20
The text that we want inserted into the G20 declaration and a form to support the declaration can be found here .

The focus of this mini-social media campaign is to highlight the importance of the Global Fund and its critical role for getting back on track to end the epidemics of AIDS, TB and Malaria. The Global Fund will be holding its 40th Board Meeting on November 14 and 15 in Geneva Switzerland, and it is a good time to highlight the need for increased investment.
As we know the Global Fund is in the final stages of preparing its Investment Case that it expects to release just ahead of February 8th’s Preparatory Meeting – we need to continue to send the message that their ask needs to be ambitious and rooted in the plans to end the diseases and its own 2017-2022 strategy.
