Global Fund Increases AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Prevention and Treatment Measures by 30-50% Over One Year
Date:7/8/2009

WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria announced its latest prevention and treatment numbers, noting in particular that Global Fund-financed programs have put 2.3 million people on treatment for HIV/AIDS, 5.4 million people have been treated for tuberculosis, and 88 million insecticide-treated nets have been distributed to prevent malaria infection. In addition, more than 500,000 HIV-positive pregnant women have been treated to prevent their babies from being born with HIV. Over the past year, the number of people accessing ARVs through Global Fund-financed programs has increased by 31%, the number given tuberculosis drugs has increased by 38% and the number of nets distributed has increased by 49%.

These latest results strengthen evidence that investments during the past five years have resulted in the most significant progress ever achieved in the global fight against these three diseases. Recent evidence suggests that global mortality from tuberculosis is now declining, AIDS mortality among adults in several high-burden countries in Africa is declining, and malaria elimination efforts have made tremendous progress, with reductions in the number of cases and malaria-related child mortality falling between 50% and 80% in a growing number of countries.(1) The Global Fund has been a leader in this progress, contributing nearly 25% of global financing for HIV/AIDS and almost two-thirds of the financing for tuberculosis and malaria.

"These impressive results from Global Fund-financed programs are a testament to what the world can do together to fight disease and improve health around the world," said Natasha Bilimoria, Executive Director of Friends of the Global Fight. "Because of strong U.S. leadership and support, the Global Fund is able to partner with countries around the world, improving not only citizens' health but in turn strengthening
