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’.

TB is the world’s most lethal infectious disease , with over 10 million new cases each year, an estimated 1.8 million deaths annually. Unfortunately, people who use drugs (PWUD) tend to have higher rates of TB and higher prevalence of latent TB infection . Lack of follow-through on medical examinations and referrals and lack of integration between various medical and public health services are key barriers to successful diagnosis and treatment. A fully Funded Global Fund in 2019 would mean critical programs targeting key populations such as drug users could be implemented and sustained. GFAN’s Get Back on Track Report released earlier this year, calls for a funding increase of more than 20% to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in its Sixth Replenishment – which includes a doubling of current Global Fund spending on TB – to ensure a fund of between $16.8 and $18 billion for 2020 to 2022.
