Published May 10, 2016: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/justin-trudeau-global-fund-1.3573142 Canada is pledging an additional $785 million over three years to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in Ottawa today. Trudeau said the new financial commitment represents a 20 per cent increase from Canada's previous contribution level. The prime minister made the announcements during a town hall on global health. "Thankfully," Trudeau said, "organizations like the Global Fund exist to make a real difference. It works hard each and every day to deliver help to those who need it most." So, once again, Canadian ME patients are forgotten.
