Global Fund Partnership saved 27 million people in more than 100 countries

Seattle, September 12, 2018 – The Global Fund Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has saved 27 million lives in more than 100 countries since its founding in 2002, and is a powerful catalyst driving progress against three of the world’s deadliest diseases, according to the new Global Fund Results Report 2018 released today. Countries supported by the Global Fund saw a 42% decline in malaria deaths between 2000 and 2016.

“The Global Fund has transformed humanity’s fight against this disease, providing countries with the effective, innovative solutions they need to save millions of lives and prevent more than a billion cases of malaria,” said Martin Edlund, CEO of Malaria No More. “With continued support from donor countries and expanded commitment from malaria-affected countries, the legacy of the Global Fund won’t just be to ‘fight’ diseases, but to end them.”
