April 12, 2013
President Obama has requested that the U.S. fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget include $1.65 billion for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria and increased funding for U.S. bilateral programs like the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the President's Malaria Initiative. According to Deborah Derrick, president of Friends of the Global Fight, the timely announcement should encourage other funders to make equally generous pledges during the Global Fund's upcoming 2013 Replenishment meeting.
