University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Register in advance

Join a conversation between Allison Tatarsky, Director of the UCSF Malaria Elimination Initiative, and Professor Sir Richard Feachem, founding Executive Director of the Global Fund (2002-2007) and professor emeritus of global health at the Institute for Global Health Sciences, UCSF.  

From September 19-21, the countries, companies, and foundation that provide billions of dollars every year to sustain the huge impact of the Global Fund will gather in New York City to announce their contributions for 2023-2025.

Much hinges on the outcome. Sir Richard will describe the origins and early years of the Global Fund, the evolution of the replenishment process, and the prospects for the upcoming 7th Replenishment. Plenty of time will be left for free-ranging discussion among all participants. 

Background

Preview 1: The Global Fund and its partners featured prominently at the UN General Assembly Special Session on HIV/ AIDS in June 2005, three months ahead of the First Replenishment Conference in London. In this press conference, Annan, Feachem and Piot present their priorities and respond to questions from the media.

Preread 1: Two years after the Global Fund got underway, the International AIDS Conference in Bangkok in July 2004, provided an opportunity for assessment and critique by all stakeholders. This independent summary picks up the major conclusions and debates. Of special note are the financial needs, the tensions between the Global Fund and PEPFAR, the statements by Kofi Annan and Nelson Mandela, and the endorsement of the very young Global Fund and its way of working. 

Preread 2:

These documents seek to answer questions that are central to the 7th Replenishment. Why should the world invest in the Global Fund? If the Global Fund receives $18 billion for 2023 to 2025, how and on what will the money be spent? What return on investment can we expect from this ambitious investment program?
