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 by The ACTION Secretariat: 

In a special session at the close of the 22nd International AIDS Conference, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and other high-level speakers  called for urgent action  to better integrate the responses to tuberculosis (TB) and HIV.
