AHF Urges G20 to Prioritize Public Health; Fully Fund the Global Fund

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 21 aprile 2019

With the 2019 G20 summit coming up June 28-29, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is joining other civil society organizations (CSOs) at the Civil 20 (C20) Summit in Japan to support C20 efforts and to call on the G20 to honor its earlier commitment to fully fund the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (The Global Fund)—the world’s most effective mechanism for fighting our deadliest infectious diseases.No other global body has more power to positively affect development worldwide than the G20— since G20 countries account for almost 90% of global GDP, 80% of international trade, and nearly two-thirds of the world’s population.
In addition to building support for increased HIV/AIDS funding and resources, AHF will be supporting C20 efforts in Tokyo to raise awareness on key health initiatives, including the fight against tuberculosis and antimicrobial drug resistance, universal health coverage, quality standards of healthcare, and investment in medical research and development.
Even though the G20 was established to address economic issues, there is nothing more important to prosperous nations than the health of their citizens. The AIDS response and other key health concerns deserve the G20’s full attention—AHF urges world leaders to adopt and start to implement the proposals put forth by C20 summit advocates to ensure that people from all countries have the opportunity to be healthy and thrive.
