[Correspondence] The Global Fund as an ATM plus

In his Comment, Richard Horton (July 7, p 14)1 advocates for an expanded mandate of the Global Fund, with the inclusion of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in addition to its support for the three global high-burden diseases (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria). This notion is welcome in an era in which poor reproductive, neonatal, mother, adolescent, and child health and catastrophic health expenditure for chronic (non-communicable) diseases still create considerable anguish and hardships for people in many countries.
