US Secretary of State John Kerry: shared responsibility way to defeat AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria
Speaking at the launch of the Fourth Replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), United States Secretary of State John Kerry called on global health partners to embrace all available tools to defeat AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, saying that shared responsibility was the only way to succeed.
The Fourth Replenishment launch, entitled: ‘No Time to Lose: Sharing the Responsibility to Save Lives’ is convening leaders in global health in Washington to consider joint action and to secure sustained funding for the next three years to support programmes that prevent, treat and care for people with AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
Also, Mark Dybul, Executive Director of the Global Fund, said in his closing remarks at the meeting: ‘The 21st century ideals that led to the founding of the Global Fund are now stronger than ever: partnership, shared responsibility, and mutual accountability. In many ways, this is a replenishment of hope. It is a lifting up of the human spirit.’
