A global organisation funding the fight against three major diseases is hoping for 14 billion dollars in funding at a donor conference opening on Wednesday in the French city of Lyon.HIV, AIDS, Edo, SACA

The Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria says that reaching its goal could help save 16 million lives and avoid 234 million infections by 2023.

The fund, which is mainly backed by governments but also gets some private funding, recorded pledges of 12.9 billion dollars in its last funding, held in Canada in 2016.

French President, Emmanuel Macron is expected at the conference on Thursday and Elysee sources say another 10 or more world leaders will join him, including the leaders of Burkina Faso, Madagascar and Niger 

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates, whose Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the fund’s biggest non-state donor, is also scheduled to speak.

The fund says that 72 per cent of the money disbursed since the 2016 funding round has been spent in Africa, with another 20 per cent in Asia and the Pacific.(NAN)
