'Here I Am' campaign calls for fully funded Global Fund

Aids Alliance

The Here I Am campaign is a global call on world leaders to save millions of lives by supporting a fully funded Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

The campaign has been launched by the Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN), which the Alliance is a member of.

Here I Am brings the voices of people that are directly affected by AIDS, TB and malaria into dialogue about decisions that affect their lives and the lives of millions of others in their countries.  Through video testimonies from all over the world, campaign ambassadors, online actions and on-the-ground mobilizations, the Here I Am campaign is building collective power to end three of the world’s most deadly diseases. 

The campaign is running a specific action aimed at world leaders who are due to meet in New York in late September.  At a dinner hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, the campaign intends to hand over a petition that calls on his guests "to act responsibility by ensuring that, amongst other things, the Global Fund achieves its replenishment targets (2014 - 2016) of US$20 billion."

To sign the petition, visit the Here I Am website. There you can also tell your story and share the campaign with friends and colleagues.
