GET BACK ON TRACK TO END AIDS, TB AND MALARIA IN A COVID WORLD
The Global Fund Advocates Network’s demand is clear: we need bold and decisive action. Now is the time for significant investment in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, an existing funding mechanism with a proven track record and credibility. COVID-19 has shown us that global-level cooperation and investments are essential to help countries rapidly identify and contain disease outbreaks and respond to, mitigate, and prevent the spread of pandemics when they occur. To be successful, we also need to get back on track towards ending HIV, TB and malaria.

Potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria in low-income and middle-income countries: a modelling study
Source: The Lancet
“COVID-19 has the potential to cause substantial disruptions to health services, due to cases overburdening the health system or response measures limiting usual programmatic activities. We aimed to quantify the extent to which disruptions to services for HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria in low-income and middle-income countries with high burdens of these diseases could lead to additional loss of life over the next 5 years.”
Activating A Human Rights-Based Tuberculosis Response
“The concept of a human rights-based response to tuberculosis (TB) is relatively new. The century-old, medicalized approach to TB did not consider the rights of the individual in planning the response. . . . With this Brief, we hope that policymakers, national TB program implementers, and communities affected by TB can come together to plan and implement interventions that uphold the dignity and human rights of all people affected by TB.”
MITIGATING THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY HIV, TUBERCULOSIS AND MALARIA
Publisher: The Global Fund
“The COVID-19 pandemic threatens to reverse the extraordinary gains made by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria partnership in the fight against the three epidemics. In 2020 we will likely see increases in deaths and new infections across all three diseases for the first time in many years as health and community systems are overwhelmed, treatment and
prevention programs are disrupted, and resources are diverted. In many of the countries most heavily affected by HIV, TB and malaria, the knock-on impact of COVID-19 on these three diseases in terms of incremental deaths may outweigh the direct impact of the virus. “
