[Correspondence] Partnering over the limit: The Global Fund’s brewing crisis

We strongly disagree with the recent comments from Peter Sands, the new executive director of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.1 In response to serious concerns from civil society,2 researchers,3 journals,4 and national representatives5,6 about The Global Fund’s partnership with Heineken, Sands states that “the global health community needs to engage the private sector more rather than less…Because if we really want to achieve the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals] and build more resilient health systems, we need to partner with the private sector to leverage their resources and their capabilities to innovate.”1 This statement seems to reflect a corporate logic that engagement with industries—all industries, regardless of their products and effect—is both inevitable and beneficial in all areas.
