The UN Foundation Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
In 2001, the UN Foundation responded to a call to action by Kofi Annan, then Secretary General of the United Nations, to mobilize resources in support of projects combating HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.

No amount is too small.
The world's youth are becoming the most vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. One third of the estimated 40 million people living with HIV/AIDS are 15 to 24 years old.
Donations will be used in part for the training of teachers in AIDS prevention education as well as awareness-raising activities. It is also crucial to obtain enough funds to train doctors for HIV counseling and testing, which is non-existent in some regions.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that each year more than 8 million people become sick with tuberculosis, a treatable disease. The number one recommended strategy for detection and cure of TB is called DOTS.
Individual contributions can greatly assist in the financing of drugs for DOTS, which can cost only US $10 per person for the full course of treatment. DOTS has proved to work with a success rate of up to 80 percent in the poorest countries.
In sub-Saharan Africa, approximately 3,000 people die from malaria each day, most of them children. However, only 2 percent of children in this region sleep under an insecticide-treated bed net. As the average cost of a treated mosquito net is only US $4, a small donation could go a long way to saving these lives. Sending a long-lasting, insecticide-treated net costs only $10.
