Private businesses and foundations have played a fundamental role in the design and development of the Global Fund, as well as a critical part in advocating for multi-stakeholder participation in all areas of the Global Fund architecture.
Financial contributions are one element of support from donors. The role of the private sector also includes governance at the global level and valuable resource contributions in addition to on-the-ground engagements.
Private sector organizations have proved effective members of the Global Fund Board, where they hold equal voting rights alongside civil society, donor and recipient governments; and of Country Coordinating Mechanisms, where they represent the needs of marginalized groups affected by the three diseases as well as improve the implementation of programs and services.
In some countries, the private sector interacts and contributes to Global Fund processes, through participation as Principle Recipients and Sub-Recipients of the grants money. The Private sector has often extended the services offered to their employees to neighboring communities and beyond.
There are challenges surrounding private sector involvement. While in some cases the private sector is an engaged partner and implementer, in most cases the private sector plays a minor role in many CCMs and the national disease response. The Global Fund has developed a strategy to enhance partnership with the private sector as an implementer and contributor to good governance.
