According to the report, if there is no investment, 1 million people worldwide die of tuberculosis

Second report of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, released on Thursday (12), the world could avoid spending $ 47 billion (approximately R $ 106 billion) in health care.

The document highlights that countries that do not invest in the Fund, can record each year, 2.6 million new HIV infections, other 196 000 lives lost to malaria.

The Global Fund is asking donors for a guarantee of at least $ 15 billion for 2013. The investment could ensure adequate treatment for 3 million people against tuberculosis and prevent 430 million cases of malaria.

Also according to the report, if there is no investment, 1 million people worldwide die of tuberculosis. Experts explain that the disease is not treated now, at a cost of $ 30 per patient in the future, this value can increase up to a thousand times to accomplish the same medical care.

For the period between 2014 and 2016, the Fund and its technical partners estimate that it will take $ 87 billion dollars to fight and keep under control the three diseases in low and middle incomes.

In the last decade there has been great progress in combating these problems. In 2000, for example, only 50 000 people were receiving antiretroviral cocktail Saharan Africa. This number rose to over 7 million in 2011.

Regarding tuberculosis, in the same period, the detection rate increased from 43% to 66% and treatment success rate of 67% to 87% among the countries with the highest number of cases.

Malaria is the most significant result. According to the report, there was a 90% reduction in deaths among children.

Speaking about the benefits of combating these diseases, the Global Fund said that for every dollar invested in the fight against HIV, there is a return of $ 12. The economy in spending increases to $ 20 nno case of malaria and $ 30 in tuberculosis.
