Our Mission: Friends advocates for U.S. support of the Global Fund, and its goal to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
Our Vision: At Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Friends), we are passionate about ending the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
As an advocate, Friends engages U.S. policymakers and influencers in conversation about the Global Fund’s lifesaving work, and highlights the significant returns on health investment, both for global partners and for America.
As an educator, Friends works diligently to communicate the Global Fund’s innovative, efficient and transparent approach to global health funding, and the significant impact it achieves.
As a convener of substantive and outcome-oriented discussions in the U.S., Friends has built strong credibility among government, global health, private sector, faith-based and grass tops partners. We foster connections among a broad range of stakeholders who are committed to improving global health and saving lives.
Since 2004, Friends has served as the leading source in the U.S. of accurate, timely information on the Global Fund, a public-private partnership that is challenging how the world fights disease. Friends shares the Global Fund’s vision to end the worldwide burden of these deadly epidemics through an approach that is innovative, efficient and transparent.
