Deaths from HIV, TB and Malaria Could Almost Double in 12 Months Unless Urgent Action is Taken

Global Fund COVID-19 Report

Deaths from HIV, TB and Malaria Could Almost Double in 12 Months Unless Urgent Action is Taken The Global Fund "A new report released by the Global Fund estimates that countries affected by HIV, tuberculosis and malaria urgently need US$28.5 billion to protect the extraordinary progress achieved in the fight against the three diseases in the past two decades. The report, Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 on Countries Affected by HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria, was released today to highlight the impact of COVID-19 and resources needed to protect progress against HIV, TB and malaria – diseases that still kill more than 2.4 million people a year. Since 2002, the Global Fund partnership has helped save more than 32 million lives and cut HIV, TB and malaria deaths by nearly half since the peak of the epidemics. The COVID-19 pandemic now threatens to reverse that progress." (Photo: IDWF/flickr, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
