Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria: U.S. Contributions and Issues for Congress [August 3, 2010]   [open pdf - 374KB]

From the Document: "The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund, or the Fund) was established in 2002 as a public-private partnership that could provide significant financial support for global responses to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria. As of May 28, 2010, the Global Fund has committed to grant roughly $19.3 billion for related programs in 144 countries. These funds have been used to treat more than 2.5 million HIV-positive people, about 6 million people infected with active TB, and 107.8 million cases of malaria, saving nearly 5 million lives. The United States has strongly supported the Global Fund since making a founding pledge in 2001, serving on several Global Fund boards, donating more to the Global Fund than other country, and increasing those contributions annually since FY2005. Donors will meet on October 4, 2010, to make their pledges for the Global Fund over the next three years. Should the United States provide 25% of the Global Fund's budget, as it has done on average since the Global Fund was founded, annual U.S. donations would reach between $3.25 billion and $5 billion in each year from 2011 through 2013."
