SAP announced that in addition to committing USD 4 million over a period of four years to the Global Fund, an international financing organization started in 2002 to fight AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria, through its partnership with (RED), SAP technology is helping the organization more simply understand how its financial investments are being used for disease prevention and treatment. "SAP is all about helping organizations simplify complexity so they can do anything - and it doesn't get more complicated than fighting persistent and deadly diseases around the world," said Pfungwa Serima, Chief Executive Officer, SAP Africa. "By providing our technology innovation and leadership, we can help the Global Fund extend their reach and effectiveness. This partnership shows how technology can revolutionize the healthcare industry and save lives." In 2013, the Global Fund disbursed USD 3.9 billion worldwide to create sustainable funding for the fight against AIDS in Africa. In addition to providing a charitable grant, SAP knew it could significantly increase its impact by contributing technology. The Global Fund is launching an innovation coalition of leading private sector companies to provide expertise that supports the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria. SAP is a founding member of the coalition. SAP technology, in partnership with expertise from other companies in industries like transportation or insurance, will unite to try and ensure a more effective method of supplying and distributing medicine.
