APPG on HIV/AIDS joins with TB and Malaria APPGS to host a reception for the Global Fund

As replenishment of the Global Fund draws nearer the APPG has been working hard to increase awareness amongst Parliamentarians of the important work the Global Fund does. On 12th July the HIV/AIDS APPG joined with APPGs on TB and Malaria to host a reception with special guest speaker Annie Lennox. The event was a great opportunity to get the important message across that the UK needs to increase its contribution to the Global Fund.

APPG hosts a joint meeting alongside TB and Malaria APPGs with Sir Richard Feachem and Mark Dybul

Sir Richard Feacham, former Executive Director to the Global Fund accompanied the current Executive Director, Mark Dybul in a joint APPG meeting to discuss with Parliamentarians the importance of the Global Fund’s work. The meeting was a great success, with representatives from key civil society organisations such as STOPAIDS, Results UK and Malaria No More. Most Parliamentarians, by the end of the meeting were in agreement that the UK should pledge £1.2 billion to the Global Fund, now we need to ensure that this message reaches the Government.
