Ending AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria: How the Global Fund can make the difference
Brussels – As the Global Fund to Fight to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria gets ready to launch its fourth replenishment bid for US$ 15 billion, Members of the European Parliament, high level guests and community advocates today spoke of the critical need to defeat the three deadly diseases.
“We are truly at an exciting and important time: years of experience and advances in diagnosis and treatment are showing us how funding directed at the right programmes, for the right populations and at the right scale can help us to see the beginning of the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.” said Charles Goerens MEP who was hosting the event. “Today’s panel was meant to encourage open discussion about how we as a global community can support the Global Fund to make the difference in taking the response to the three diseases to the next level, and I think we have had a very fruitful debate, especially on the responsibility the European Union has in that regard as the world’s leading donor.”
Eleni Theorachous MEP added: “It was very important to us as MEPs to explore why the Global Fund is relevant to us here in the European context – as donors and as implementers of Global Fund grants.” She added “The messages we heard today from MEPs, the Global Fund’s Executive Director, Mark Dybul, and civil society activists underscored the importance of reaching that UDS 15 billion figure in order to ensure the Fund is able to address the epidemics in every part of the world. That includes middle-income countries and Eastern Europe in general which has the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world, concentrated in the most vulnerable parts of the population, and where mdr TB treatment success has been going down instead of up.”
According to Lucy Chesire, Global Fund Board member from the Communities delegation: “As someone who works with communities affected by TB and HIV in Kenya and has survived TBHIV co-infection, it was important to share the positive impact the Fund has had over the last decade $22 billion has been mobilised to scale up access to prevention, treatment and other services for all three diseases and it is inspiring to see that literally tens of millions of lives have been saved because of the Fund’s interventions around the world.”
She concluded: “We are at a tipping point in our fight against these three diseases, ending these communicable diseases is dependent on a successful replenishment, countries are proving that its possible to end AIDS,TB and malaria. This replenishment isn’t just about donors giving money, it is also about finding the political will – whether in donor or implementing country, private industry and civil society communities – as it is a very real possibility and hope that , we can end these diseases in our lifetimes.”

Global Fund advocates assessment of the Global Fund’s resource needs for 2014-2016: what will it take to defeat AIDS, TB and Malaria?
In preparation for the first meeting of the 4th Voluntary Replenishment 2014-2016 of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria on April 9-10, 2013 in Brussels, civil society advocates have reviewed the Global Fund’s Needs Assessment paper.
The Needs Assessment paper determines there is a total funding need of US $87 billion for AIDS, TB and Malaria for 2014-2016 and proposes a Global Fund share of US $15 billion. It describes current trends and scenarios that indicate that a successful Global Fund replenishment of US $15 billion, together with other sources of anticipated funding, would meet 87% of the total resource need (US $76 billion of the total US $87 billion), leaving a US $11 billion gap.

The theme for World Malaria Day 2012 – Sustain Gains, Save Lives: Invest in Malaria – marks a decisive juncture in the history of malaria control. Whether the malaria map will keep shrinking, as it has in the past decade, or be reclaimed by the malaria parasites, depends, to a great extent, on the resources that will be invested in control efforts over the next years.
