European Programme to confront HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis

The 2974th External Relations Council meeting held in Brussels on 17 November 2009 welcomed the Commission's Progress Report on the European Programme for Action to Confront HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis through External Action (2007-2011) as well as the progress made in some of the areas that the programme is committed to address. However, the Council noted with concern that, in spite of the progress made, these three diseases continue to kill millions of people every year and are undermining social growth and development and seriously hampering efforts to achieve all the MDGs. The Council therefore recognised that the three diseases will continue to pose exceptional global challenges for decades to come and called for stronger, more effective and more concerted efforts of the Commission and Member States to accelerate progress in confronting them. This must be underpinned by continued and intensified support to strengthen health systems.
