Get involved: Global Week of Action

Aids Alliance

A ‘Global Week of Action’ kicks off on Monday (20-28 September) to push for a fully funded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

On the 5th October donor countries will declare how much they are willing to commit to the Global Fund for the years 2011 to 2013. This will define the impact that can be made on the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGS) leading up to 2015 - the MDGs deadline.

The Global Week of Action will urge world leaders to demonstrate their commitment to the health of the most vulnerable. A march will take place in New York on Monday, the opening day of the MDG summit, and Tuesday will see marches in a number of African countries including South Africa, Zambia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Kenya, Lesotho, Cameroon, Nigeria and Ghana.

Global activities are planned all week so check out the Global Week of Action page for events near you.
