WHAT: The Global Fund 2014-2016: Sustaining the Fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis, & Malaria

Leading policymakers and academics will reflect on the unique window of the Global Fund to eliminate AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as public health threats, and will discuss the next three years in this global fight.

The Global Fund seeks to raise $15 billion to control the three epidemics amidst a backdrop of a still-recovering global economy. The panels will discuss the impact of the pledges; the ability of the new funding model to both expand country health systems and strengthen their ability to have a platform for other interventions; and lessons learned about global health policy, governance, and architecture over the first twelve years from the only multilateral institution created in the 21st century.
