Communities and Civil Society at the Sixth Preparatory Meeting welcome the Investment Case released by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) for its Sixth Replenishment during the Preparatory Meeting held in New Delhi on the 7 & 8 February 2019 with the auspices of the Government of India.

We emphasise that the US$14 billion investment is the bare minimum required to achieve the Global Fund Strategy goals for 2017 – 2022.
