We can end AIDS, TB and Malaria!
The Here I Am campaign is a global call on world leaders to save millions of lives by supporting a fully funded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Here I Am brings the voices of people that are directly affected by AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria into dialogue about decisions that affect their lives and lives of millions of others in their countries. Through video testimonies from all over the world, campaign ambassadors, online actions and on-the-ground mobilizations, the Here I Am campaign is building collective power to end three of the world’s most deadly diseases.
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria saves lives.
AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria are three of the world’s most deadly diseases. But they are also treatable and preventable. The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a unique, public-private partnership and international financing institution dedicated to attracting and disbursing resources to prevent and treat AIDS, TB and malaria. By bringing together governments, civil society and the private sector to work together to save lives, the Global Fund channels funding to support 150 countries to prevent and treat AIDS, TB and malaria. The Global Fund currently channels two-thirds of the world’s financing to fight TB and malaria, and one-fifth of the world’s funding to fight HIV/AIDS.
In the Fall of 2013, world leaders will make new commitments to replenish the Global Fund. These pledges will determine the amount of funding that will be available to fight AIDS, TB and malaria globally between 2014-2106. At the April 2013 launch of the Global Funds Replenishment process, the Global Fund identified its share of the global need for AIDS, TB and Malaria funding to be USD 15 billion. If donor countries commit to investing in a fully funded Global Fund, between 2012-2116, 10 million more lives will be saved, and between 140-180 million people will never become infected with AIDS, TB or malaria. By joining the Here I Am campaign, you can help us convince world leaders to commit to fully fund the Global Fund at the replenishment conference.
