Canada Steps Up and Increases its Pledge to the Global Fund!

Canada Steps Up and Increases its Pledge to the Global Fund!

On Thursday, August 22, 2019 GRAN was proud to be represented by Irene Clarke when Minister Monsef announced that Canada will be increasing its investment in the Global Fund by 15.7% to a total of CAD $930.4 million over three years (2020-2022).

A huge shout out to all those GRAN members who sent postcards, letters and tweets, and met with the Parliamentary Secretary and MPs to press Canada and the international community to make this investment that will save millions of lives.
