With the launch of its 2015 Results Report, the Global Fund 5th replenishment campaign has now officially begun.

After years of discussions, the new Sustainable Development Goals will be adopted in a matter of days. This renewal of global commitments has invigorated debates and offered an opportunity to evaluate how far we’ve come. Thanks in part to the investments channelled by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria , progress has been made for MDGs 4 (reduce child mortality), 5 (improve maternal health) and 6 (combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases). The Global Fund, along with other pooled finance mechanisms, is seen as one of the great successes of the MDGs because of its impact on health – this is why we need to ensure that the Global Fund remains a key and strong player when we start work on the SDGs.

GFAN is also renewing its work in 2015. Organizations in our network may remember Maurine , a women and girls HIV advocate from Kenya and one of our Here I Am Ambassadors during the last Global Fund replenishment campaign. These ...

The aim was to begin to identify mechanisms, tools and resources needed to mobilize, communicate and coordinate among the GFAN community and that would help us move forward with a plan.

As Joanne Carter, GFAN’s Steering Committee chair, said in her opening thoughts to the meeting, “Many folks have said that this will be a difficult replenishment, but when we look back to where we were a dozen years ago, we know we’ve faced bigger challenges previously, when we were f...
