This month the grassroots network convened to discuss new predictions made on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have on the number of cases of other infectious diseases; TB, HIV and malaria, and why the UK Government should invest in the new CRM-19 mechanism to help mitigate those impacts. Were joined by guest speaker, Mike Podmore, Director of STOPAIDS and civil society board member for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. This month we’ll be meeting MPs to make the case for investing in the Global Fund’s CRM-19 mechanism. Read the June campaign action materials here.
