NGOs call on France to increase contribution to Global Fund by 30%

French NGOs called on France to increase its financial support to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), which hopes to mobilize at least US$18 billion for the next three years to save an estimated 20 million lives, build strong health systems, and prepare the response to future pandemics ahead of its seventh replenishment conference.

In a joint statement, Action Santé Mondiale, Friends of the Global Fund Europe, Equipop, Sidaction, and Solidarité Sida, called on France, the Global Fund's second-largest donor, to increase its financial contribution to the Global fund by 30%, which corresponds to the organization's ability to tackle its three key focus areas.
