Act Today: Three Simple Actions to Ask World Leaders to Stop AIDS, TB and Malaria 10/04/2013
Since 2002, the Global Fund has provided AIDS treatment for 4.2 million people, anti-tuberculosis (TB) treatment for 9.7 million people and 310 million insecticide treated nets for the prevention of malaria. To build on these results, the Fund is looking to world leaders to commit at least 15 billion USD to its work over the period 2014-2016.

A fully funded Global Fund is critical if we are to see the three diseases of AIDS, TB and malaria defeated within our lifetime. And strong advocacy ahead of a Pledging Conference in September 2013 could be a matter of life or death for many of the people who will benefit from the work of the Fund over the next few years.
A first opportunity for advocacy presents itself this week as governments gather in Brussels on 9-10 April for preparatory meetings on the replenishment process, and we, as faith communities, are invited to support the ‘Call to Action’ issued by global civil society in support of the replenishment process.
Therefore, after reading this email, why not take these three simple actions to remind world leaders that you - along with many others around the world - are committed to addressing AIDS, TB and malaria… and that you expect them to do their part too:
- Read and sign the ‘Call to Action’ as an individual
- Ask your organization to sign ‘Call to Action’ hosted by www.hereiamcampaign.org
- Promote the “Call to Action” to others – both individuals and organizations
