The Sixth Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria held in October 2019 in Lyon raised US$14 billion to fight the three pandemics over the next three years. Following on from a first Paper published prior to the Conference, this second Paper from the CNS calls on France to strengthen its influence and action both within the multilateral framework of the Global Fund and bilaterally, in order to improve the quality and effectiveness of the global response to HIV, particularly in Western and Central Africa. It also proposes significant changes to the new Global Fund strategy for 2023-2028 to ensure that stakeholders work together more effectively to achieve the sustainable development goals.
This Position paper was adopted by the French National AIDS & Viral Hepatitis Council (CNS), during a plenary session on 19 March 2020, by a unanimous vote of all members present.
