Counterpart financing, in the Global Fund context, refers to the requirement that the government of the recipient country make a financial contribution to:
The counterpart financing requirements apply to all requests for renewal except for multi-country grants or those approved outside of the Country Coordinating Mechanism procedure. This includes those grants with civil society or other nongovernmental Principal Recipients.
As of January 2012, countries that request funding must ensure that their government contribution meets the minimum threshold at the time of renewal. In cases where the applicant country government’s contribution is below the minimum threshold, it must develop and submit an action plan for reaching the minimum amount required.
The minimum thresholds are determined according to country income level:
*These percentages are calculated as follows: government contribution / (government + Global Fund contribution)
The minimum counterpart financing threshold is set at the same level for disease grants and programs and for cross-cutting health system strengthening (HSS) but the methodology for calculating the minimum threshold is different.
The “minimum threshold” for disease grants and programs refers to the minimum amount of the government’s contribution to the national disease program as a share of total government and Global Fund financing.
Counterpart financing in the context of crosscutting HSS grants/programs is the total of the government’s contribution to all national disease programs (HIV and AIDS, TB and malaria, as applicable) which have either an existing grant or a funding request under consideration. Global Fund financing is the total of both existing and requested funding for the applicable diseases and crosscutting HSS.
