The Global Fund is a unique global public/private partnership dedicated to attracting and disbursing additional resources to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. This partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and affected communities represents a new approach to international health financing. The Global Fund works in close collaboration with other bilateral and multilateral organizations to supplement existing efforts dealing with the three diseases. Since its creation in 2002, the Global Fund has become the dominant financier of programs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, with approved funding of US$ 21.7 billion for more than 600 programs in 150 countries. To date, programs supported by the Global Fund have saved 6.5 million lives through providing AIDS treatment for 3 million people, anti-tuberculosis treatment for 7.7 million people and the distribution of 160 million insecticide-treated bed nets for the prevention of malaria. Global Fund financing is enabling countries to strengthen health systems by, for example, making improvements to infrastructure and providing training to those who deliver services. The Global Fund remains committed to working in partnership to scale up the fight against the diseases and to realize its vision – a world free of the burden of AIDS, TB and malaria.   Fighting AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria  The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was created in 2002 to dramatically increase resources to fight three of the world’s  most devastating diseases and to channel the money to areas of greatest need.  While the majority of Global Fund investments support treatment and prevention efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS, it has emerged as the predominant funder of tuberculosis and malaria programs, making up two-third of international commitments for these diseases.   Fighting HIV/AIDS 3 million people are receiving antiretroviral treatment 150 million HIV counseling and testing sessions were conducted 5 million basic care and support services were provided to orphans and vulnerable children 1 million HIV-positive pregnant women have received PMTCT treatment (Prevention from Mother to Child Transmissions) At the end of December 2009, approved HIV proposals have totaled close to US$ 10.8 billion covering 140 countries.     Fighting Tuberculosis 7.7 million new cases of infectious tuberculosis were detected and treated 48% of the 2009 estimated international targets for detection of TB cases and treatment using DOTS were contributed by Global Fund supported programs Approved TB proposals have totaled close to US$ 3.2 billion covering 112 countries, contributing 48 percent of the projected coverage required to achieve the Stop TB Partnership targets for the detection and treatment of new smear-positive TB cases.     Fighting Malaria 160 million bed nets were distributed to protect families from transmission 142.4 million malaria drug treatments were delivered Approved malaria proposals have totaled US$ 5.3 billion covering 83 countries.
