Laser Talk on Pitching a Global Fund Oped, Lisa Marchal, Senior Global Grassroots Associate Engage: Luwiza Makukula is in the US to thank us for saving her life. She is alive today because of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, and the US is the top contributor. Problem: Few Americans know how things have changed around these three diseases over the past 10 years. Nor do they know how many lives our investments in the Global Fund have saved. Inform: Since 2002 the Global Fund has put 5.3 million people on antiretroviral therapy, has treated 11 million cases of deadly TB, and has distributed over 340 million mosquito bednets. The Global Fund saves and estimated 100,000 lives each month. Call to Action: I would like the people in our community to know more about the Global Fund, and pass on Luwizas message of thanks. The best way would be an editorial. If not that, would you be open to printing an oped from me that would highlight 3 things? 1. The track record of the Global Fund in saving and improving lives. 2. The feeling of gratitude expressed by Luwiza and others. 3. The opportunity we have to control AIDS, TB, and malaria and why US leadership is critical during the upcoming replenishment conference in December.
