Join the fight to save lives

By 2015, we can practically end mother-to-child transmission of HIV and dramatically cut the number of people who die every year from tuberculosis and malaria. This would mean achieving the first HIV-free generation -- a goal shared by everyone working to fight these diseases, and a goal we're on track to reach thanks to the work of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and its partners.

Millions more lives saved from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and an HIV-free generation by 2015.

Morgan Freeman, Annie Lennox, Jeremy Irons, Alan Cumming, Djimon Hounsou, Deepak Chopra and many others have pledged their support for these goals. Sign your name and join us!

To overcome AIDS, malaria, and TB, the United States joined nations from around the world to develop the Global Fund, an innovative approach to global health. Formed in 2002, the Global Fund unites dedicated citizens, scientific innovators, and visionary governments together with commitment and resources in a common mission: winning the war against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

The Global Fund has saved more than 7.7 million lives by funding treatment and preventative care programs across the planet. But these programs are at risk. By adding your signature, you join Annie Lennox, Morgan Freeman and others calling for a stronger, healthier world. Co-sign the letter of support today.

The strategy works. It's already helped save more than 6.5 million lives. This year, Global Fund-supported programs will help save over a million lives.

In only a few years, no child will be born with HIV. Hundreds of thousands of children will no longer die from malaria. Deaths due to tuberculosis will be cut in half.

But in a war against disease, we must remain vigilant. There is still much work to be done.

Join the fight to save lives.

We simply cannot win the war against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria without the vocal support of millions of people throughout the world. Please, show your support for the Global Fund.

Together, we have the power to keep saving one million lives every year.
