In October 2019, the French government will host the Sixth Replenishment of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In a recent report, "Get back on track to end the epidemics", the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) demonstrated that significant increases in international funding are urgently needed if the global goal to end the three epidemics is to be met. This in turn requires donor governments to increase their support to the Global Fund for the period 2020-2022. Given that the EU has played a crucial role in the Global Fund's establishment in 2002 and has supported it ever since, its continued leadership is now paramount. This is why Aidsfonds and Global Health Advocates, with the support of GFAN, have issued a Policy Paper calling on the EU to protect and deepen the global health gains of the recent decades by increasing the EU's next contribution to the Global Fund to €580 million. An early pledge - before the European elections - would build momentum leading up to the Pledging Conference by galvanizing other European and international donors to scale up their investments.
