The Global Fund Fourth Replenishment will be launched on 3 December 2013 at a meeting hosted by the United States Government in Washington D.C. The funding secured through this process will drive the implementation of the Global Fund’s new funding model in 2014, and will fund grants for the 2014-2016 period. As activists in implementing countries in Africa, we can contribute to this launch by calling African leaders, in the spirit of shared responsibility, to increase investments in health from their national budgets as an opportunity to enhance country ownership and sustainability in the programs that fight against AIDS, TB and Malaria.
With precisely seven days to go to the launch of the GF replenishment, we would like to invite you to reach out to as many African leaders as you can through Twitter.
