[Perspectives] Peter Sands: charting a new course for The Global Fund

Peter Sands had a stormy start before taking up his new position as Executive Director of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria on March 5, 2018. He was plunged into controversy last month after the decision by The Global Fund’s senior management team to partner with Heineken, among other multinationals, and the implications for global health. The organisation, which invests and raises almost US$4 billion each year, is the world’s largest public–private partnership set up to finance programmes to treat and prevent these three diseases and strengthen national health systems in the long term.
