UNDP in partnership with governments, Civil Society Organizations, the Global Fund and other partners supports and strengthens systems for health, including national responses to HIV, Tuberculosis and malaria. The objective is to ensure access to quality health services for all, and enable all those living or affected by the diseases to live healthy, productive lives. UNDP’s Global Fund portfolio has saved millions of lives in support to countries. Expanding opportunity for children and young adults in their most productive years who would have otherwise succumbed to the diseases, and sparing countries the devastating socio-economic impact at both community and national levels of high mortality and morbidity rates.
