The Global Fund Fifth Replenishment Conference will take place in Montréal, Quebec (Canada) on 16 and 17 September 2016.

The Replenishment Conference is the moment to double down on the success of the Global Fund partnership. “We have a model that works – now is the time to ensure it has the funds to end the epidemics for good,” says the fund on it’s website.

Approximately 400 participants will join the conference in Montreal, including all Global Fund partners, implementers, donors, nongovernmental organizations, communities affected by HIV, TB and malaria, and representatives from international organizations, the private sector and private foundations.

As host of the Fifth Replenishment Conference, Canada will play a leading role in this historic opportunity to end HIV, TB and malaria as epidemics by 2030.

The Fifth Replenishment Conference seeks to mobilize US$13 billion (86 milliarder kroner, red.) for the three-year period 2017-2019 to:

  • Save up to 8 million lives, for a total of 30-32 million lives saved by 2020
  • Build on the results achieved and prevent the resurgence of the diseases
  • Avert 300 million new infections
  • Support partners in domestic investment of US$41 billion toward the three diseases
  • Deliver US$290 billion in economic gains

These investments will create opportunity for millions and break down barriers to health care, especially for women and girls in poor countries.

Strong investment in global health can significantly bolster international stability and security, while creating prosperity, well-being and empowering young people as leaders for social change.

  • H.E. Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary General
  • Bill Gates, Co-Founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • H.E. Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister of the People's Republic of Bangladesh
