French NGOs call President Macron to help fully fund the Global Fund
Ten French non-governmental organizations (NGOs) published an open editorial on the France Info website to call on French President Emmanuel Macron to mobilize his counterparts to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The NGOs who signed the editorial are Doctors of the World, Aides, Global Health Advocates, ONE, Sidaction, Equilibres & Populations, Coalition Plus, Solidarité Sida, Solthis, and Planning familial. The NGOs formally made their request on World AIDS Day on December 1, 2018, 300 days before the Global Fund replenishment France will host on October 10, 2019, in Lyon.
NGOs have also set up a petition on change.org calling for an increase in funding for the three pandemics.
