The Canadian government has allocated $785 million to support the Global Fund, which finances the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a press release on Monday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trudeau argued that the money, which will be dispersed from 2017 to 2019, will help to save about 8 million people. 

​​"Canada is committed to ending HIV, tuberculosis and malaria epidemics for good by 2030," Trudeau stated. 

​"Canada is making the choice to lead on this critical issue for the poorest people." 

​The Global Fund, established in 2002, supports more than 1,000 anti-AIDS, TB and malaria programs in more than 150 countries.

​The prime minister added that the Canadian city of Montreal will host the Fifth Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund on September 16.
