It’s official: for the period 2020-2022, Italy will contribute €161 million to the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, +15% compared to Italy’s previous contribution.
Italy is already the ninth major public donor to the Global Fund.
Italy’s Vice-Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Emanuela Del Re, stressed that “The Italian Development Cooperation is ready to continue to play an important role in this global fight.”
In view of the replenishment of the Global Fund, last May, AICS Addis Ababa welcomed to Ethiopia a delegation composed by the Senator Alessandro Alfieri and the Deputies Yana Ehm and Simona Suriano and had the chance to show them the projects financed by the Italian Cooperation and the activities supported by the Global Fund in the country. The mission was organized by Network Italiano Salute Globale and AIDOS Associazione italiana donne per lo sviluppo, together with the Agenzia Italiana per la Cooperazione allo Sviluppo and the Global Fund.
