After years of reforms and measures put in place to cope with a funding shortfall, the Global Fund’s New Funding Model presents an unmissable opportunity, and MSF expects to see further progress as countries seize this momentum.

This issue brief outlines key aspects of the New Funding Model that are critical for countries to put into practice. The second section provides observations from MSF teams working in the field of HIV in Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Mozambique and Malawi regarding the current needs and challenges as these countries prepare their strategic plans and concept notes to access funding.

The Global Fund is praised in the report card’s Public Health category for changes made under the new funding model. CFR also applauded the Global Fund for what it deemed “a highly successful” Fourth Voluntary Replenishment Conference in December 2013. At that time, international donors committed $12 billion in funding for the 2014-2016 period.

The Global Governance Report Card was designed to grade international performance in addressing the world’s most daunting challenges, and aims to inspire innovative and effective responses from global and U.S. policymakers.
