What is the Global Fund?
The Global Fund is a global health initiative committed to accelerating the end of the AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria epidemics that continue to devastate communities around the world — particularly in underserved areas. A partnership that brings doctors and healthcare workers from across the globe together, this effort is truly dedicated to eradicating these epidemics completely.
Here are some of the highlights of the Global Fund’s accomplishments since being established in 2002:
- 38 million lives saved since 2002
- 6 million lives saved in 2019
