The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria presents its achievements at a roundtable in Paris on the occasion of its 10th anniversary

In partnership with Le Monde diplomatique, on 11 January in Paris at the Grand Auditorium of Le Monde, the Global Fund Executive Director Michel Kazatchkine officially launched a 4 page supplement which celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Called “Ten - year fight for world health” this supplement reflects on the decade of progress in global health to which the Fund has contributed.

In this supplement, contributions from Kofi Annan (“ A war chest”), Françoise Barré-Sinoussi (“Toward a world without HIV”), Michèle Barzach President of Friends of the Global Fund Europe (“ Europe’s engagement” ) and an opinion piece from Michel Kazatchkine ( “Finding a way to remobilise”) outline the lifesaving work of the Global Fund from 2002 when the Fund was created to 2012, the results and the impact of the Global fund in its 10 years of existence. The supplement also reflects on today’s financial situation and the challenges.
