Established as a partnership in global health, the Global Fund works closely with a wide diversity of partners –implementing governments, donors, civil society, international development organizations, the private sector and communities living with and affected by the diseases. This partnership model actively supports country-owned approaches that develop and implement effective, evidence-based programs to respond to AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

In prisons, overcrowding, poor nutrition and lack of proper ventilation cause inmates to be much more likely to be infected with tuberculosis, a disease caused by an air-borne bacteria. Levels of TB are often dramatically higher among prison communities than the larger population, but the disease can be spread relatively easily through staff, visitors and former inmates, putting nearby communities at risk. Global Fund investments to fight TB in Nicaragua are focused on prison populations, as well as other groups which are more vulnerable to infection, such as people infected with HIV and those living in poor neighborhoods.
