HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria are the world's great killers.
- 4 million people died of AIDS in 2002.
- Tuberculosis accounted for 1.9 million deaths in 2002.
- In the same year, malaria killed more than 1 million people, mostly children in Africa.
There is an urgent need for a significant increase in resources to address the challenges created by the severe epidemics of tuberculosis, malaria and HIV/AIDS.
The Globalsite to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria will ensure that the unprecedented international and political attention that has now been mobilized is translated into real commitments that will help improve access to the information, goods and services that people so urgently need.
