The Friends of the Global Fund Africa (known as “Friends Africa“) is a Pan-African organization which works to mobilize strategic political and financial support for the fight against AIDS, TB and Malaria. In the run-up to this year’s replenishment conference for the Global Fund, happening in a couple of days time on October the 4th-5th, they have produced an excellent document that translates the facts and figures – the millions of lives saved and billions spent – that are so frequently spoken about when we talk about the Fund’s impact into personal, tangible stories of what the Global Fund has been able to achieve for real people across Africa.
The report, available here, is a testament to what the Global Fund has achieved, showing the voices and numbers in an African context. It is packed with powerful examples that will move you and deepen your understanding of the Fund’s massive impact. Stories like these are what our advocacy for the Global Fund is about – by ensuring the Fund receives enough money we can make sure they are replicated throughout the world.
