[For Immediate Attention/Broad Dissemination/ACTION]: "Help us bring the voices of people who benefit from the Global Fund to World Leaders!

Dear Friends,

 

We need your help! 

 

Now more than ever, we have the opportunity to make a remarkable difference against HIV, TB and Malaria. We have the opportunity to really change the course of these epidemics in our  lifetime. 

 

In less than one month world leaders are coming together in New York and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon will be hosting a special dinner. We are wanting to hand over to him, a petition (copy enclosed below) that calls on World Leaders to act responsibly by ensuring that, amongst other things, the Global Fund achieves its replenishment targets (2014 - 2016) of US$20 billion. 

 

The Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) and the "Here I am campaign" (an initiative of GFAN and the Communities Delegation) are requesting you to go to http://www.hereiamcampaign.org/sign-on-2/ in order to sign the petition. 

 

The Here I Am campaign is a global call on world leaders to save millions of lives by supporting a fully funded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.  Here I Am brings the voices of people that are directly affected by AIDS, TB and malaria into dialogue about decisions that affect their lives and the lives of millions of others in their countries.

 

Time is running out! Please circulate amongst your contacts including via facebook and twitter and please sign yourself! We are aiming to collect 5000 signatures before 20 September 2012. We can turn the tide against these epidemics! 

 

 

Dear World Leaders:
Ten years ago, tackling HIV, tuberculosis and malaria seemed an almost impossible task. Today it is possible to see the beginning of the end of these three killer diseases. To make this historic achievement possible we need sufficient resources available and the right mechanism to invest them.

We call on your leadership and ask you to:

1. Pledge an additional contribution now to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for 2012 and 2013 to raise US$2 billion for scaled up investments in the three diseases and allow for full implementation of the Global Fund’s new strategy;

2. Ensure the Global Fund is fully funded for the next Replenishment period 2014-2016, expected to be around US$20 billion in total;

3. Champion a funding model that ensures the Global Fund remains global and responds to the full needs of people with or at risk of HIV, TB or Malaria – a model that is not limited by caps but rewards ambition, results, and increased domestic investments.

Evidence shows that the right investments in AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria can dramatically change the course of the epidemics over time and save money by reducing the future cost of public health. With your leadership… we can end AIDS, TB and malaria in our lifetime!

 

On behalf of the Communities Delegation,

 

Regards,
