Bill Gates, Bono, Ban Ki-moon, Jeffrey Sachs, and you.
That’s what the lineup of faces appearing onstage at our 10th anniversary celebration could look like. All we need is your photo.
This Thursday, the Global Fund will mark ten years of impact in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Thanks to the tireless work of the hundreds of thousands of healthcare workers we support in 150 countries and to the drugs, anti-malaria nets and medical equipment we finance, the world has made amazing, life-saving advances. We’re looking forward to the next ten years, and to meeting the challenges ahead.
It’s been an incredible decade. In just ten years, the programs the Global Fund supports around the world have provided financing for life-saving AIDS treatment to 3.3 million people, treatment for 8.6 million cases of tuberculosis, 230 million insecticide-treated nets to prevent malaria, treated 1.3 million HIV-positive women to prevent the transmission of the virus to their babies, and much more.
Now we’re asking our supporters for help: For our 10th anniversary we’re putting together a giant collage of photos of people who are involved in the struggle against epidemic diseases, including some of the world’s leaders, and we want you alongside of them. The more people we can see, the better we can show that we have a global movement for change.
With your on-going support, we are confident that we can achieve goals like seeing the birth of an HIV-free generation starting in 2015.
Here’s to another decade of change!
