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 .

Guest Blog Post:  Kasia Lemanska, Aidsfonds

The next few months will be crucial for the future of EU development policy and EU’s support for health: the long-term budget of the EU (Multiannual Financial Framework) is being negotiated and will determine the level of resources made available for health, including global initiatives. In view of this process, the timing of the next Global Fund replenishment poses a challenge. Indeed, the EU’s next pledge will be drawn from two Multiannual Financial Frameworks: the present one, which runs until 2020, and the following, which starts in 2021.

The rationale behind an early pledge

However, amidst Brexit uncertainty, no one can safely say whether the EU will be able to finalize its budget negotiations before the next EU elections, in May 2019. This is of direct importance to the Global Fund replenishment as the elections will result in the appointment of a new European Commission. The...

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.

STOPAIDS invited GFAN Speaker Clara Banya to speak to UK Parliamentarians from the Conservative Party about her experiences and the importance of the Global Fund. Clara’s clear message to Parliamentarians highlighted the importance of Global Fund Funding to end the epidemics of HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria:

‘I am the living testimony of what Global Fund has achieved over the years, without it I could have been dead long, long time ago. Continue to support the Global Fund so that the gains we have made over the past 18 years do not go down the drain’.

Guest Blog Post:  Evaline Kibuchi, Chief National Coordinator Stop TB Partnership – Kenya

The world is talking about achieving universal health coverage (UHC). This will only be achieved when all donors make health a priority. We have an opportunity to eliminate TB. In Kenya, 60% of the TB response and almost all MDR TB programming is funded by the Global Fund. Without a successful replenishment, the Kenya TB program would collapse. With a fully funded Global Fund, more can be done to address the catastrophic costs associated with TB care.

Evaline shared a pointed example of how critical patient centred care is, and that failing to address the needs of patients, in particular for key populations, can have deadly consequences.

On April 25, 2018, Joyce, a 12-year-old Kenyan girl, died of MDRTB. She had visited eight hospitals and clinics before she was finally diagnosed with MDRTB in August 2017. The late diagnosis meant...

GFAN Speakers are advocates and volunteers who take time out of their extremely busy schedules to speak with people around the world about the importance of the Global Fund.  This week, GFAN Speaker Resty Nalwanga shares with us the work she does with young mothers in Kampala, Uganda and why the Global Fund is important to her.  Resty’s childhood had her shuffled around frequently between relatives as she struggled to be healthy.  She contracted TB twice and was diagnosed with HIV when she was a teenager.  During her illness, Resty started volunteering at local health centres and became involved in youth HIV advocacy work. 

Today, Resty’s work focusses on community sensitization and workshops on HIV and TB.  “So far my interventions with these community members shows there’s still limited information on tuberculosis and what happened to me when I was a kid still exists.  Mothers incorrectly administer medication to the chi...
