The Global Fund was created 20 years ago to fight what were then the deadliest pandemics confronting humanity: HIV and AIDS, TB and malaria. Since then, our unique partnership has saved 44 million lives and cut the death rates from the three diseases by more than half. Together, we have proven that with science, adequate resources and effective global collaboration, we can force even the deadliest diseases into retreat. Today, we are the world's largest multilateral organization fighting the world's deadliest pandemics: HIV, TB, malaria and now COVID-19. As the largest multilateral provider of grants in global health and the only multilateral agency specifically created to fight pandemics, the Global Fund partnership is uniquely placed to collaborate with partners to support countries to prevent, prepare for and respond to pandemics.
