Global Fund to Fight AIDS Tuberculosis and Malaria

Volume 463: debated on Wednesday 12 September 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if he will make it his policy for the UK Government to make a three year contribution of at least £700 million to the Global Fund for AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. (154819)

We have yet to decide on the precise level of the UK's future engagement with the Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and Malaria. We have to date contributed £359 million to the fund and in terms of pledges made we are its sixth largest donor.

At the Berlin Replenishment Conference in September and afterwards, we will be looking for evidence of the Global Fund's performance and trajectory, which will inform the UK's decision on future engagement.
