Also available in: Español

The Global Fund Board approved a motion which will allow the Secretariat to provide up to $US 5 million funding to respond to the health crisis in Venezuela. The decision is the culmination of a concerted and unyielding effort by Venezuelan and global activists to push the Global Fund to show leadership in supporting countries in crisis.

Alberto Nieves, Executive Director of ACCSI said that “while the crisis in Venezuela continues and deepens, this
support is an important display of global solidarity and in time of extreme need. We are happy that our
community monitoring is being taken seriously and we commit to continue to monitor the situation.”
