Good news from ONE.org: World leaders pledge $12 billion to AIDS, TB and malaria

World leaders pledge $12 billion to AIDS, TB and malaria

You’ve been at it for almost a year now: sending postcards, signing petitions, making phone calls, hosting dance parties and more.  All of this in support of The Global Fund’s replenishment—one of the most important moments of the year in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria.
And your hard work paid off. World leaders pledged just over $12 billion over the next three years, a 30 percent increase over the amount raised by The Global Fund at its last replenishment.
In these tough economic times, that’s a huge victory worth celebrating. With these new resources, The Global Fund will be able to scale up its important work, supporting partners to deliver even more ARVs, bed nets, TB treatments and other life-saving programs.
I’m proud to announce that many of the governments we lobbied delivered on their promises. President Obama publicly announced the US will contribute one-third of all resources over the next three years—exactly what US ONE members had asked for.
