GFAN Pre-Meeting

Members of civil society and communities gathered together on the morning of October 8 for a discussion, updates, and a Q&A with Global Fund Executive Director, Peter Sands. The meeting was hosted by GFAN and its Regional Partners from Africa and Asia-Pacific. Participants had an opportunity to gather as well as to look at last-minute messaging and preparations for the conference. We would like to give a special thank you to the Global Fund for providing this space for advocates and communities to meet.

TB kills more people than any other infectious disease and is the leading killer of people living with HIV; about one in three deaths among people with HIV are due to TB.

The Global Fund provides 69% of all international financing for tuberculosis (10% of total available resources) and has disbursed US$6.6 billion for TB programs and US$2.1 for TB/ HIV programs as of June 2019. As the leading international funder of TB programs, the Global Fund is a critical partner in achieving the new targets set at the UN High-Level Meeting.
