THE TB COMMUNITY HAS A VOICE.
IT'S TIME TO USE IT AND STEP UP THE FIGHT AGAINST TB!
SIGN THE PETITION TO URGE GOVERNMENTS TO FULLY REPLENISH THE GLOBAL FUND!
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has saved the lives of over 27 million people since 2002. Every three years, government and private sector partners commit to investing in the Global Fund and support programmes run by local experts in more than 100 countries to accelerate the end of these three diseases.
 
This replenishment year, the Global Fund is seeking at least US$14 billion to continue its work: providing prevention, treatment and care services, strengthening local health systems, and improving economies. TB programmes currently receive 18% of this funding, making the Global Fund the most important source of external investment for the TB response.
 
More than 4,500 people around the world die every day from TB – a disease that is curable. This has to stop. We need you join us and SPEAK UP for the Global Fund by adding your name to the
Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) call to action and show that YOU WANT strong financial commitments from government and private sector partners around the world. A robust Global Fund is key to meeting the promises made last year at the United Nations High Level Meeting on TB.
 
YOU HAVE A VOICE. IT'S TIME TO USE IT.
