ABSTRACT Over 300 organizations in 67 countries have signed the International Appeal for Full Funding of the Global Fund. The Appeal was launched two weeks ago by the three NGO board members of the Global Fund, backed by a coalition of NGOs in Europe, North America and Japan.

Over 300 organizations in 67 countries have signed the International Appeal for Full Funding of the Global Fund. This Appeal was launched two weeks ago by the three NGO board members of the Global Fund, backed by a coalition of NGOs in Europe, North America and Japan. The board members explained that donor governments, at their Replenishment Meeting to be held on September 5-6 in London, are likely to pledge far less money to the Global Fund than the Fund says it requires. The Appeal that the 300 organizations signed calls upon donor governments to contribute their fair share to meet the Global Fund’s needs, and specifies exactly how much each donor should contribute.

 

The Appeal has also been signed by eleven CCM Chairs, and a number of prominent persons, including Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town; Stephen Lewis, Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa of the UN Secretary-General; Zachie Achmat, Chair of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) in South Africa; and Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

 

The period for accepting signatures has been extended to 3 September. Full details about the Appeal and who has signed are available at www.aidspan.org/globalfund/appeal. Organizations can sign by emailing GlobalFundAppeal@aidspan.org.
