Most of that $14 billion is destined for the African continent, where millions of people have died from these epidemics.

Our guests tonight included Zolelwa Sifumba, one of the faces of the Global Fund’s Initiative. She is a doctor from South Africa who contracted multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis.

Éric Fleutelot, technical director of the Major Pandemics unit at Expertise France, also joined us on the set.
