The Global Fund Strategy 2017-2022: Investing to End Epidemics In April 2016, the Board of the Global Fund unanimously approved the organization’s strategy for the period 2017 to 2022, titled Investing to End Epidemics. The strategy is based on a framework of four clear objectives: The strategy was developed through an extensive consultation process which took place throughout 2015 and the early part of 2016. Not only did we reach out to donors, technical partners, communities affected by the diseases, and implementers, but we also held a series of three Partnership Forums during the course of 2015. Themes which emerged from these consultations with a broad range of stakeholders include: the need to better address challenges faced by women and girls; the need to support resilient and sustainable systems for health; and the need to strengthen work on sustainability and human rights. With the approval of the strategy, the next step is to work out how best to operationalize these goals and to develop a key performance indicator framework that will allow us to measure progress on the fulfillment of these ambitions.
