Today the ONE Campaign released a new accountability report tracking global progress against AIDS. Released just ahead of World AIDS Day on December 1, ONE’s new report shows that if current rates of acceleration continue, we could achieve the beginning of the end of AIDS.
But the analysis also shows that African countries have made widely divergent progress towards the beginning of the end of AIDS: Sixteen countries in sub-Saharan Africa have already reached the beginning of the end of AIDS, but others lag far behind.
These findings show that fully-funding the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria is more important now than ever.
Just after World AIDS Day, world leaders will converge on Washington, D.C. from December 2-3 to pledge support for the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The replenishment conference will mark our chance to invest in scaling up our best tools against these diseases. The Global Fund has driven progress to control these diseases in low- and middle-income countries over the past decade, and new investments will ensure the Global Fund can continue scaling up its programming.
