New York, Sep 21 (EFE).- Spain will contribute 130 million euros (roughly $129 million) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria over the next three years, the country’s prime minister Pedro Sánchez announced at a New York event Wednesday.
Sánchez joined Barbados prime minister Mia Mottley for an event under the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers initiative being held on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
From climate change, to the pandemic and war in Ukraine, the PM said the world had changed since he last set out Spain’s commitment to the Global Fund in 2019, where he announced 100 million euros in contributions.
“Governments need to act on many fronts simultaneously, but we cannot forget the targets that we had set for ourselves for 2030, which is why we need to redouble our efforts.
“In this regard, I’m so happy to announce that Spain will contribute 130 million euros for the next three years to the Global Fund.” EFE
