MONTREAL, Sept 17 A global public-private
partnership has reached its goal of raising $13 billion from
international donors to combat AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis,
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Saturday.
During an international conference in Montreal, the Global
Fund asked government, faith-based and private-sector donors to
raise a total of $13 billion over the next three years, starting
in 2017. The fund, the world's largest aimed at fighting the
three diseases, is credited with saving 20 million lives since
it was established in 2002.
