THE GLOBAL FUND.
The Global Fund is a 21st-century partnership organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics.
Founded in 2002, the Global Fund is a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases. The Global Fund raises and invests nearly US$4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in countries and communities most in need.
The Global Fund is a financing institution, providing support to countries in the response to the three diseases; we do not implement programs on the ground. Global Fund staff, all based in Geneva, Switzerland, come from all professional backgrounds and from more than 100 different countries.
By challenging barriers and embracing innovative approaches, the Global Fund partnership strives for maximum impact. Working together, we have saved millions of lives and provided prevention, treatment and care services to hundreds of millions of people, helping to revitalize entire communities, strengthen local health systems and improve economies.
Samuel Eto’o: I Beat Malaria
Growing up in Cameroon, footballer Samuel Eto’o contracted malaria and lost friends to the disease. Every year, more than 438,000 people die of malaria – the vast majority of them children. Eto’o beat malaria and went on to become the most decorated footballer in African history.
The fight against malaria is one of the biggest success stories of the 21st century. Since 2000, the number of deaths among children under 5 has fallen by 60 percent, meaning an estimated 6.1 million deaths have been averted in this vulnerable age group. “Malaria did not beat me. Let’s not let it beat others,” says Eto’o, who has teamed up with the Global Fund as a champion in the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria. Together, we can end malaria as an epidemic for good and give millions more children the chance to grow up and live their dreams.
