Global Fund executive director Mark Dybul met with Fantino on Monday in Ottawa to press Canada to increase its commitment as the fund tries to raise another $15 billion to fight the three infections over the next three years.
“Canada is one of the original countries that created the Global Fund. Canada has been a good partner and I want to thank the people of Canada for that,” Dybul said in an interview.
“Canada plays a leadership role on the world stage in the fight against deadly diseases such as malaria and this will continue,” Fantino said in a release.
