President’s Malaria Initiative
Heads of global AIDS, TB and malaria agencies reinforce call to ‘get back on track’ for Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment
With fewer than 100 days left before the Global Fund's Replenishment Conference on October 10, we are off track from our global goal to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria. A resurgence of these epidemics will cost lives, undermine development, and threaten global health security.
On 22 March, the U.S. Congress approved a budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, which includes a $1.35 billion contribution for the Global Fund, equal to what the U.S. contributed in FY 2017. In so doing, Congress ignored a proposed budget from President Donald Trump which would have resulted in $225 million less funding for the Global Fund.
In the U.S., FY 2018 runs from 1 October 2017 to 30 September 2018.
