Glob­al Fund nets record haul of $14B to elim­i­nate HIV, TB and malar­ia

The glob­al fund that was es­tab­lished to fight some of the world’s dead­liest dis­eases — HIV, TB, and malar­ia — raised a record $14.25 bil­lion yes­ter­day from donor coun­tries, NGOs, and pri­vate com­pa­nies.

While the to­tal still fell short of its tar­get of rais­ing $18 bil­lion, the Glob­al Fund said this was the largest amount raised since the or­ga­ni­za­tion was set up in 2002, adding that the do­na­tions could help save 20 mil­lion lives and avert 450 mil­lion new in­fec­tions.
