The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has announced a pledge of $10 million to the global fund ahead of the Seventh Replenishment of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

The Global Fund is the world’s best financing mechanism for fighting infectious diseases. 

A release made available to Daily Trust Saturday in Makurdi by AHF’s Marketing/Advocacy Manager in Nigeria, Steve Aborishade, indicated that the announcement was made on Wednesday in New York City.  

“Given the Global Fund’s outstanding track record of saving lives around the world, we feel our pledge is one of the best investments donors can make in global health,” said AHF President Michael Weinstein.

“AHF works in synergy with 31 Global Fund-supported countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe, by implementing HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment delivery, and advocacy programs and providing AHF Fund grants to assist other non-profit organizations. The $10 million pledge will represent another facet of the collaboration with the Fund.”
