The Global Fund’s Strategy for 2017-2022: “Investing to End Epidemics” aims to focus on the countries with the highest burden of HIV, TB and malaria and with the least ability to pay for these programs. It also aims to focus on key and vulnerable populations disproportionately affected by the three diseases. The allocation methodology aims to increase impact by directing a greater portion of the funding to these people and places.
To do this, the Global Fund invests in countries, regions, and other strategic initiatives. It has a specific policy which helps guide decisions on how money should be divided up by countries and diseases.
