The Three Diseases Fund (3DF) ended its activities in December 2012. An independent evaluation is available, which assesses the Fund's impact over its 6 year period. A new Fund, the Three Millennium Development Goal Fund (3MDG) has been set up building on the successful work of 3DF.
3DF was a US$138 million multi-donor consortium that aimed to reduce the human suffering caused by HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Myanmar. A consortium of donors comprising the European Commission and the Governments of Australia, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom established a pooled funding mechanism in October 2006 to finance this effort. Denmark joined the Fund in 2009.
The Fund's core aim was to provide a simple and transparent way to finance a nationwide programme activities in the three disease area; informing the public, reducing the transmission of the diseases and enhancing patient care and treatment through access to essential drugs and related services.
