"The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria strongly welcomed a pledge of $750 million by Nordic countries, a highly significant contribution to defeating these three infectious diseases," a press release from the fund states, noting, "The announcement was made in Stockholm on September 4 in a joint statement by Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and the United States, and coincided with meetings by their leaders with President Barack Obama, hosted by Sweden." The press release adds, "Collectively, the pledge represents over $150 million in increased funds from the Nordic countries. The statement specified that the contribution would unlock an additional $375 million from the U.S., signaling the leverage of every pledge" (9/5).
