Global Fund Increases AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Prevention and Treatment Measures by 30-50% Over One Year

local and national economies. It's a development tool that continues to be a sound investment and shows real results."

Together, AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria kill about six million people per year. With grants worth $16 billion in 140 countries around the world, the Global Fund has become the world's leading global public health financier.

"In less than eight years, the Global Fund has gone from a concept to a driver of change," said Michel Kazatchkine, Executive Director of the Global Fund. "When we first began our work in 2002, few people in developing countries were being treated for AIDS or tuberculosis. Malaria was a neglected disease. Many countries simply did not have the resources to fight these diseases effectively. Now the story is changing dramatically. There is still much to be done, but we are making real progress and I am proud that the Global Fund is a leader in this global effort."

In 2002, the U.S. government made the founding $200 million pledge to the Global Fund. In FY2009, the U.S. government appropriated $1 billion for the Global Fund, the highest amount contributed to date. Strong support from the U.S. government is a critical component of Global Fund success; every $1 committed by the U.S. is leveraged to generate $2 in contributions from other donors.

"We are at an historic moment in the fight for better health," Bilimoria said. "With Global Fund financing, health and health systems are improving dramatically around the world."
