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.

As donors and implementers head to Geneva for the @GlobalFund 40th Board Meeting we remind the Fund that communities and civil society are asking for the Fund to be bold and ambitious in its Investment Case: @GFAdvocates Get Back on Track report has estimated we need more than a 20% increase and funds between 16.8 and 18 billion for the 6th Replenishment to #endtheepidemics
The work of the @GlobalFund and its partners has been very successful and saved #27million lives. However, we are not on track to end the epidemics and funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in its Sixth Replenishment needs to increase by more than 20% to ensure a fund of between $16.8 and $18 billion for 2020 to 2022.

To Get Back on Track to #EndtheEpidemics we need increased investments in the @GlobalFund so the world does not risk losing control of all three epidemics. Uncontrolled and worsened epidemics of AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria will cost countless lives, undermine economic and human development, and threaten the health security for all people on the planet.

- Work done through the efforts of the Global Fund and its partners has saved 27 million lives; this is proof of the effectiveness of the global commitment to tackle the world’s deadliest infectious diseases. However, If the world only maintains current levels of investments and programming, internationally agreed targets for 2025 and 2030 will be unattainable.
