As a partnership of governments, civil society, technical agencies, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, the Global Fund pools the world’s resources to invest in ending AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. Together, we can end these epidemics.
The Global Fund’s partnership approach encourages agile responses and maximum participation. Countries take the lead in determining where and how to best fight the three diseases, and partners amplify efforts to reach people affected by the diseases. Collectively, we harness the best possible experience, insights and innovation in the public and private sectors, from faster delivery of essential medicines to more effective methods to reach people most in need.
Civil society organizations play an active role at every level of Global Fund operations, from policy development to implementation and advocacy.
Friends of the Global Fund organizations help the Global Fund develop partnerships, promote a better understanding of our mission and mobilize political and financial support.
Government donors contribute funding to the Global Fund and are also involved in the governance of our partnership.
Implementing partners carry out Global Fund-supported programs. Each of our partnership's grants are implemented by a Principal Recipient, which can be any type of organization, from a government ministry to a community-based organization or private sector company.
Private sector and nongovernment partners contribute funding, innovation, expertise and advocacy to the Global Fund. Partners include corporations, foundations, charities, trusts, philanthropists and nongovernment organizations.
Technical agencies and development organizations are involved at every level of the Global Fund partnership, offering technical expertise, supporting resource mobilization and advocacy efforts, and monitoring and evaluating programs.
