Anadach Webinar: The Global Fund in Africa, Engaging the Health Diaspora

 AHIN Staff:
Approximately 11700 people die every day from HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Nearly two-thirds of these people are living in sub-Saharan Africa. 2012 marks 10 years of the Global Fund and is an important turning point in its history. The Global Fund is transforming its operations to re-focus the organization on its core purpose as a financing institution; and implementing a new Strategy 2012-2016, Investing for Impact, approved by the Global Fund Board at its November 2011 meeting, in Accra. Have you wondered how the Global Fund  attracts and disburses significant resources to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, TB and malaria?If you have, please join Dr. Debrework Zewdie, Deputy General Manager  & Head of Strategy, Investment and Impact Division, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria by webinar on October 3rd between 10.30 am and 11.30 am (EST).  Dr. Debrework Zewdie, an Ethiopian national, has dedicated the past 30 years to mitigating the impact of the AIDS epidemic in her diverse capacities as scientist, strategist, manager, policy maker, program implementer, advocate and activist. She will share her experience on the Global Funds's work in Africa. She also wants to hear from you on how the Global Fund can invest more strategically and get more value for money in fighting AIDS, TB and Malaria in Africa! This would be a good opportunity to ask those questions you have always wanted to know about the Global Fund and contribute to bringing new thinking on the most efficient and effective way to spend scarce resources in a challenging economic climate for global health financing.

This webinar is one of the series of Anadach Webinars  targeting African Health Professionals in the Diaspora. Please send any questions you might have to info@anadach.com or tweet #anadachwebinar.  We encourage participants to send questions prior to the event.  However, there would be an opportunity to ask Dr. Zewdie some questions after the presentation.
