Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and malaria continue to affect the health of people around the world, but especially women and girls in low-income countries. Girls and women are at higher risk of contracting HIV. Women account for 25 per cent of HIV infections while only making up 10 per cent of the population. TB is among the top five causes of death for women and girls living in low-income countries. Malaria is potentially fatal and especially dangerous for pregnant women as it can cause miscarriage, low birth weight or premature births. The Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment is an opportunity for Canada to help ensure access to quality health care for women and girls in low-income countries. Additionally, the Global Fund aligns with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy and the THRIVE Agenda. Before the Seventh Replenishment conference, Canada must invest $1.2-billion in the Global Fund to fight the global effects of HIV, TB, and malaria. Nathan Au Ottawa, Ont.
