The Global Fund
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria will hold a conference in Oslo on 5-7 March 2007 to focus on what the fund has achieved to date and to identify the needs for the next five-year period.
Norway is a major contributor to the fund, which thus far has provided financial support to 450 programmes in 136 countries – for a total of USD six billion. The fund was established five years ago and is headquartered in Geneva.
