WAC Global Fund

The global fund was created to finance a dramatic turn-around in the fight against AIDS, TB and Malaria., the Global Fund has committed US$ 5.8 billion in 132 countries to support aggressive interventions against all three diseases.

The estimated global needs for the three diseases in 2010 are 30 billion US dollars, based on calculations by UNAIDS and the Global Plan to Stop TB. By going for a Global Fund share of 10 billion a year by 2010, the Global Fund would account for approximately 75% of the TB and Malaria funding and 35% of HIV/AIDS funding worldwide (vs currently 65% of TB and Malaria funding and 20% of HIV/AIDS funding).
