The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria announced need for increased investment to $ 15 billion. The money will support countries in the fight against the three diseases between 2014 and 2016.

According to the CEO, Mark Dybul, the Fund must choose between "invest now or pay forever." The representative also drew attention to what he considers "great value of investment in health" to be done by both the Fund and its partners.

The multilateral organization that finances the fight against the three diseases was founded in 2002. Since then, states have supported over 1,000 projects in 151 countries.

One of the challenges identified by the entity's what Dybul called "challenging fiscal environment in many nations."

The treatment against the virus that causes AIDS covers 4.2 million people, while the anti-tuberculosis therapy requires other 9.7 million. To prevent malaria, were provided 310 million insecticide-treated bed nets, revealed the entity.

The planned investment for years to come combined with other funding sources, will prevent more than 1 million new infections of HIV, prevent the spread of tuberculosis by 17 million people, and prevent millions of cases of malaria, complta Mark Dybul.
