The COVID-19 pandemic is having a serious negative impact on the most vulnerable communities worldwide and threatens progress on HIV, TB, malaria and all areas of health. To this end, Hope For Future Generations, a member of the Global Fund Advocacy Network in Africa (GFAN Africa) is leading the GFAN Africa #TheBeatContinues campaign in Ghana.
This campaign is in line with the Global Fund’s unite to fight campaign which seeks to defeat COVID-19 and mitigate the impact of the pandemic on the fight against HIV, TB and malaria.
The key messages for the campaign are:
To defeat COVID-19 and safeguard the critical fight against HIV, TB & malaria, additional domestic and international funding is needed.
To defeat COVID-19, the response must address gender barriers, stigma & discrimination, and protect human rights.
To defeat COVID-19, protect progress against HIV, TB and malaria, and save lives, we must unite to fight.
