GLOBAL HEALTH AND THE FIGHT AGAINST AIDS
In 2018, our fight against AIDS and other pandemics took a dual approach. The first approach was, once again, to work on Spain becoming a fundamental donor of the Global Fund in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, as our country was up to the year 2011, when contributions came to an end. Despite the existence of full parliamentary agreement, we continue without a commitment. But we're getting closer every time. The second approach, the launch of the NADIE campaign in Latin America and the Caribbean, brought to the fore the stigma and criminalisation suffered by the populations most vulnerable to HIV/AIDS in this and other middle-income regions whose countries are also suffering from the withdrawal of international funding. If the funds continue to dwindle and the needs of these populations are not covered we will never be able to end this pandemic.
