Japan has pledged to contribute $246.8m to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in 2010, which is 27% up on last year's $194.4m. It brings Japan’s overall contribution to the Global Fund to more than US$1.2bn since 2002. Japan's commitment, "despite a challenging international economic environment", was welcomed by the Global Fund as "an example for other countries at a critical moment for global public health".
