As we push into the Last Mile before the Replenishment Conference in Lyon, in October, please find below some messaging and tools you can use to share the Global Fund’s Results Report during UNGA and beyond.
The Global Fund: You can find the Global Fund on Twitter @globalfund & Facebook @theglobalfund
The Global Fund has Released their Results Report! Here you can find the Global Fund Results Report documents and Social media tool kit. The main hashtag is #StepUptheFight
GFAN: Please find some suggested social media posts that you can use to share the Global Fund’s Results Report:
- @theGlobalFund Results Report: while great progress has and will be made, we are not yet on track to meet SDG3 of ending the epidemics by 2030. Governments need to #stepupthefight & #getbackontrack. That means investing at the 6th Replenishment and increasing other resources #HIV #AIDS #TB #Malaria Find the full Results Report here: http://www.theglobalfund.org/en/news/2019-09-19-global-fund-partnership-has-saved-32-million-lives/
- One year after the #TBHLM, @theGlobalFund report says current efforts are “not enough to bend the curve.” BUT with concerted effort, progress can be made: Global Fund program to find additional 1.5 million missing #TB cases in 13 countries: with @WHO and @StopTB found almost 1 million by end of 2018! #stepupthefight #getbackontrack Find the full Results Report here: http://www.theglobalfund.org/en/news/2019-09-19-global-fund-partnership-has-saved-32-million-lives/
- In sub-Saharan Africa, girls 15-24 are still 2x as likely to be #HIV+ compared to boys. But a new @theGlobalFund report shows that efforts with partners including #HERVOICE , which supported 200 groups of young girls to participate in Global Fund country processes, will help us #stepupthefight and #getbackontrack. Find the full Results Report here: http://www.theglobalfund.org/en/news/2019-09-19-global-fund-partnership-has-saved-32-million-lives/
- Malaria rates have dropped 60% since 2000 – @GlobalFund report shows progress but with clear warning: malaria cases are on the rise, malaria still kills a child every 2 mins. We must invest to #stepupthefight and #getbackontrack or we risk resurgence – www.theglobalfund.org/en/news/2019-09-19-global-fund-partnership-has-saved-32-million-lives/
- 1yr after #TBHLM, @GlobalFund finds current efforts “not enough to bend the curve” BUT progress with GF program to find additional 1.5 mn missing #TB cases in 13 countries with @WHO and @StopTB found almost 1 mn by end ‘18 #stepupthefight #getbackontrack www.theglobalfund.org/en/news/2019-09-19-global-fund-partnership-has-saved-32-million-lives/

UHC2030: Our friends at CSEM have an online campaign in the lead up to the UNHLM calling for advocates to work together towards good health & well being for all. They are asking advocates to support them on twitter in the week leading up to the HLM. Find their campaign @UHC2030 on twitter. And share their 7 day Twitter Storm campaign. Useful tags include: #HealthForAll #HLMUHC #UHC #Asks4UHC
Support for Norway’s Pledge: We are hopeful that with some additional pressure from advocates we may see an early pledge from Norway. Erna Solberg the Prime Minister of Norway will be in New York for UNGA so please consider sharing over social media:
@erna_solberg & @NorwayMFA please consider an early pledge to the @globalfund! With an increased pledge we can keep the momentum going and #StepUptheFight to #EndtheEpeidmics and save another #16millionlives!
GFAN: HEADED TO UNGA? SPEAKING WITH YOUR COUNTRY REPRESENTATIVES HEADED TO UNGA? REMINDER: If you are meeting with or talking to your country missions there are still several traditional non-implementing donor countries remaining to pledge that if you have the opportunity, it is always useful for short, friendly reminders to reinforce the key messages of replenishment and the importance of the upcoming Replenishment (or to ask your country representatives to do so in their meetings).
A very short table and quick sense of CS ask in the country:
|Australia||300 mn AUD or AU$3.85 pp – CS in Australia are focusing on the per capita instead of 15% increase language. Also, for every 1$ invested in the GF, the GF has invested $22 in their region|
|Norway||15% increase acceptable ask per Investment Case and Norway is assumed to be ready to make a pledge prior to Lyon|
|Sweden||15% increase acceptable ask per Investment Case and a pledge at Lyon is assumed|
|Denmark||15% increase acceptable ask per Investment Case and a pledge at Lyon is assumed|
|New Zealand||CS ask unknown – 15% increase|
|Spain||Despite a new election being called, Spanish advocates are pursuing a pledge from the interim government of 100mn EUR|
|Republic of Korea||15% increase acceptable ask per Investment Case and a pledge at Lyon is assumed|
A few other countries remain to pledge but CS has indicated that external support would not be helpful at this stage so are not included in this list. This list does not include implementing donor countries – we would refer you to our colleagues in GFAN Africa and GFAN Asia-Pacific for any key messages with particular existing and potential new donors.
