Motion text

That this House welcomes the contribution that the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria has made to tackling these three epidemics since its creation in 2002; notes that investments from the Fund have saved 17 million lives to date, and led to a one-third decline in deaths from the three diseases in countries where it invests; further notes that investments have put 8.1 million people on antiretroviral treatment for HIV, treated 13.2 million people for tuberculosis and 515 million people for malaria; understands, however, that each year 1.2 million people continue to die from HIV/AIDS, 1.5 million people from tuberculosis and 400,000 people from malaria; recognises the role of the Fund as the principal international financing institution geared towards accelerating the end of these epidemics; further recognises that, in working towards this, the Fund has encouraged effective partnership between governments, the private sector, civil society and people affected by the diseases; notes that international finance is essential if the epidemics are to be ended by 2030, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals; appreciates that donors should commit according to their ability to contribute; further welcomes the leadership that the Government has shown through its contributions to the Fund's previous replenishments and its membership of the Fund's Board; and calls on the Government to continue its support for the Fund by contributing to its upcoming replenishment and pressing other donors to do the same.
