  • UK pledges £1.1bn to global aid fund against Aids, TB and malaria

    Britain will contribute £1.1bn to a global aid fund to help fight Aids, tuberculosis and malaria, but will attach a set of “demanding” performance targets, Priti Patel has announced. The money will fund 40m bed nets to tackle malaria, provide enough antiretroviral therapy for 1.3 million people with HIV and support the treatment of 800,000 people with tuberculosis. A proportion of the investment will be used to leverage £100m from the private sector specifically to tackle malaria.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
