#TheWorldWeNeed: let’s fight for what counts

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Global Fund is calling on the world for new resources to recapture the losses caused by COVID-19 and get back on track toward ending HIV, TB, and malaria, as well as build resilient and sustainable systems for health to strengthen pandemic preparedness.

The choice is clear for Canada: we either heed the Global Fund’s call for increased support and impact, or we abandon the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target of defeating HIV, TB and malaria by 2030 and remain unprepared for future health threats. Securing ambitious, unprecedented leadership from Canada will require all hands-on deck!

Ahead of World Malaria Day, join us for this webinar to learn, take action, and mark the launch of our #FightForWhatCounts campaign! We will brainstorm together – including with community health workers from Kenya – on how to #FightForWhatCounts to defeat the epidemics, end health inequity, and protect humanity from future pandemics.

Featured speakers:
-Rosemary Wanjiru, Community health volunteer in Nairobi, Kenya
-Carolyne Wasonga, Peer educator in Slaya, Kenya
-Dr. Robyn Waite, Director of Policy and Advocacy at Results Canada

There will be time to interact with other participants, plus a question-and-answer period to wrap it all up.

What you can expect to learn about:
-The Global fund’s seventh replenishment and the highlights of their recently launched case for investment.
-The impact of COVID-19 on the fight against HIV, TB, and malaria and what will happen if immediate action is not taken.
-How an ambitious pledge to the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment will lead to impact.
-How you can take meaningful action as part of our #FightForWhatCounts campaign and be part of creating #TheWorldWeNeed
