PARIS (AP) - Heads of states, CEOs and global health leaders are gathered in France to try to raise at least $14 billion to finance the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria over the next three years.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who hosts the conference in the city of Lyon, wants the event to raise a larger amount than the $12.2 billion brought in at the last conference in 2016.
