UNITAID is an innovative global health initiative that uses its long-term 
sustainable funding to support projects that positively impact the market 
for medicines, diagnostics and other health products for HIV/AIDS, TB and 
Malaria. UNITAID also encourages innovation to ensure medicines are 
available in formulations and combinations that are best suited to the 
target populations and treatment conditions in developing countries. Much 
of UNITAID?s funding comes from a levy on airline tickets, which is both 
sustainable and predictable. UNITAID also receives long-term funding from 
governments. Since its inception in 2006, UNITAID has committed more than 
US$ 1,103,000 to projects in 94 countries. The UNITAID secretariat is 
hosted by the World health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
