HC Deb 08 May 2003 vol 404 c786W
12. Mr. Lyons

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proposals he has to finance the Global Health Fund. [111893]

John Healey

The Department for International Development has committed $200 million to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria over five years.

In addition, the Treasury is seeking international support to establish the International Finance Facility, which will raise $50 billion annually to fund the Millennium Development Goals. This money would be disbursed in the form of concessional loans and grants, including debt relief.
