As we mentioned in a previous post, the United Nations Foundation has produced a ground-breaking documentary, “A New Picture of Health” showing how individuals and families are coming together in the most dire circumstances to tackle the health problems plaguing their communities.
A special screening of the film is taking place in Parliament on Monday 27th September and we’d like to you to ensure your MP receives an invitation.
Narrated by renowned primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall, the documentary looks at how the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is enabling cooperation and collaboration to fight disease and improve the quality of life for millions of people in the developing world.
The screening comes as the Global Fund faces a replenishment need of between $13 and $20 billion over three years. The screening of the 30 minute film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Michel Kazatchkine, Executive Director of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, Andrew Mitchell, Secretary of State for International Development, Justin Byworth, Chief Executive of World Vision, Gill Greer, Director-General of International Planned Parenthood Federation, and Richard Manning, Vice-Chair of the Global Fund Replenishment.
The screening will be held from 9am to 11am on Monday 27th September in the House of Commons. For more information or to RSVP, please contact the organisers.
