With nearly 93%, 70% and 25% of malaria, HIV and TB burden, respectively, sub-Saharan Africa is the epicenter of the malaria, TB and HIV epidemics. While much progress has been made vis-à-vis targets since 2010 against the three epidemics, especially in regard to the epidemic control of HIV, much remains to be done if the global community is to end these epidemics in 2030. Arguably, if the fight against HIV, TB and malaria is to be won by 2030, it certainly has to be won on the African continent.
The development of the Global Fund’s post-2022 strategy has commenced and will span the 2020 – 2021 period – with emphasis on the period concluding in May 2021 when the strategy framework will be approved by the Global Fund’s Board.
