Donors at the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment Conference in Lyon, France last week pledged US $14.02 billion over the next three years to fight AIDs, tuberculosis, and malaria around the world. The donors consisted of governments, the private sector, and foundations, all united under the goal of eliminating these diseases globally by the year 2030. This was the largest amount ever raised by a multilateral health organization, and the largest amount ever raised by the Global Fund.
The Tahir Foundation, a strong partner to the Global Fund, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and M2030, pledged US $53 million at the Global Fund conference. $26.5 million of this pledge will be dedicated to supporting malaria elimination programs in Indonesia. The Tahir Foundation’s pledge also unlocked an additional matching contribution of $26.5 million for Global Fund malaria programs from the UK government’s Department for International Development.
The Tahir Foundation is a Pioneering Partner and supporter of M2030, and played a key role in launching M2030 Indonesia last August. Along with its leadership in helping to build the M2030 movement around the world, the Tahir Foundation’s latest pledge to the Global Fund highlights its continuing commitment to the fight against malaria. Through the strong support of the Tahir Foundation and all of our other M2030 partners, we are confident that we can defeat malaria together by the year 2030.
