Geneva – The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis Malaria has invested $4.1 billion since 2002 to fight malaria, helping to save 830,000 lives by the end of 2010 through a dramatic increase in use of insecticide-treated nets and effective anti-malaria drugs in countries where the disease is endemic. An additional $2.18 billion in financing for malaria has been approved but not yet disbursed.
By mid-2011 results from programs that receive Global Fund support showed that 190 million insecticide-treated bed nets had been distributed to protect families from malaria.
NAIROBI, Kenya, 14 October, 2011: An estimated two and a half million people in Somalia, already suffering from drought, famine and conflict, are at risk of contracting malaria with the start of the rainy season. To prevent a malaria epidemic and deaths, especially among malnourished young children and internally displaced populations, a massive response is underway. UNICEF, WHO and partners are scaling up the response to a potential malaria outbreak with funding from the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) and the UK Department for International Development.
