Since 2006, the Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation has been designated as the Principal Recipient of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and also coordinates the implementation in Romania of numerous projects aimed at improving the quality of life of people affected by HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis.
In 2004, the Foundation was included among the leading implementers of programs financed by the Global Fund to Fight HIV / AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, within the Round 2 of funding.
Between 1 July 2008 and 30 June 2010, the Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation coordinated the implementation of the HIV grant “Towards Universal Access to HIV/AIDS Prevention, Treatment, Care and Social Support for Vulnerable and Underserved Populations” of 8.7 million euros.
The purpose of this program was to keep the incidence of HIV/AIDS in Romania at the low level recorded in 2005, through effective, targeted interventions for vulnerable groups and young people living with HIV/AIDS.

The second grant funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, “Scaling up tuberculosis control in Romania by focusing on poor and vulnerable populations” aims to increase the level of TB control in Romania. By implementing this program remarkable progress was achieved in terms of decreasing the number of TB cases, increasing the treatment success rate for patients with both TB and MDR/XDR-TB, decreasing TB mortality. The program began on 1 September 2008 and will be completed in September 2014. The overall grant amount is 11.4 million euro.
