- Uganda pledges USD 3 million to the Global Fund.
- The target is to raise at least US$18 billion, a minimum required to get the world back on track toward ending HIV, TB and malaria.
Uganda Represented by the Vice President has announced a USD 3m pledge, and committed to Uganda's continuous alignment with the Global Fund so as to end pandemics.
This was during the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment Pledging Conference convened by the US President Joe Biden.
The target is to raise at least US$18 billion, a minimum required to get the world back on track toward ending HIV, TB and malaria.
It will also be used to build resilient and sustainable systems for health and strengthen pandemic preparedness, making the world more equitable and safer from future threats.
Vice President Jessica Alupo accompanied by Health Minister Ruth Aceng and Uganda's Permanent Representative to the UN attended the summit.
Alupo Says Uganda recognizes the need to increase support for this Replenishment by at least 30%.
The Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment is the world’s opportunity to rise to the challenge and take bold action to protect everyone, everywhere from the deadliest infectious diseases.
