The Global Fund – Saving Lives
The Global Fund is a worldwide movement to defeat HIV, TB and malaria and ensure a healthier, safer, more equitable future for all.
The Global Fund raises and invests US$4 billion a year to fight the deadliest infectious diseases, challenge the injustice which fuels them and strengthen health systems in more than 100 of the hardest hit countries. The Global Fund unites world leaders, communities, civil society, health workers and the private sector to find out what works and take it to scale – so the world makes more progress, more rapidly. It’s working. Since 2002, the Global Fund movement has saved 38 million lives.
Through leveraging economies of scale, working with partners like RAM and negotiating directly with manufacturers, the cost of an insecticide-treated mosquito net (LLIN) and the cost of antimalarial treatment has been reduced by 36% and 39% respectively since 2014. These savings have enabled us to to provide more than 59.8 million additional antimalarial treatments, leading to more lives saved.Find out more
