In 2019, the Global Fund’s 6th Replenishment raised more than $USD14 billion to fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Just two years later, the world has changed significantly. Put simply: COVID-19 devastated prevention and treatment programs. For the first time since the Global Fund’s founding, in 2020 the world lost ground in the fight against HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
The Global Fund moved quickly to support countries to respond to COVID-19 and its impact on the three diseases, repurposing and leveraging additional funding to support urgent needs and adapt programs. Despite those efforts, the need for action to resume progress in the fight against HIV, TB and malaria has never been greater.
The world faces a choice.
The Global Fund Advocates Network’s demand is clear: we need bold and decisive action. Now is the time for significant investment in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, an existing funding mechanism with a proven track record and credibility.
To close the gaps and get back on track, the Global Fund will need at least $28.5 billion for the period 2023-2025.
That is about $3 billion a year for HIV, $2.4 billion for TB, $2.6 billion for malaria and $1.5 billion to create resilient and sustainable systems for health and to support community-led programs that are the foundation of success.
