The Global Fund, May 2018
Microbes do not stop at national borders, so an infectious disease threat anywhere is a threat everywhere. Making our world safer from epidemics means strengthening the capacity of countries to prevent, detect and respond effectively to current and emerging health threats. With a mandate to end HIV, TB and malaria as epidemics, the Global Fund partnership plays a leading role in saving lives, preventing infections and fighting drug resistance for these diseases. Through investments on surveillance and laboratory capacity, training of health-care workers, supply chains and data gathering, the Global Fund is helping countries build resilient and sustainable systems for health to respond to the next infectious disease outbreak.
