The Global Fund partnership mobilizes and invests more than US$4 billion a year to support AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria programs run by local experts in more than 100 countries. Strong financial operations are the backbone of the Global Fund partnership’s collective efforts toward ending the epidemics.


The Global Fund raises funds in three-year cycles known as Replenishments. Funding comes primarily from the public sector, with about 93% of total funding coming from donor governments. The remaining funding comes from the private sector, private foundations and innovative financing initiatives.

Contributions to the Global Fund have steadily increased since 2002, when we were founded. Supported by strong advocacy from many partners, especially by civil society and people affected by the diseases, advocates of global health have guided governments to contribute constructively to reduce the burden of disease in countries worldwide.

The Global Fund uses an allocation-based funding model to direct resources where they are needed most. The model determines an allocation for each eligible country at the beginning of each three-year cycle. Allocations are calculated using a formula that is predominantly based on a country’s disease burden and economic capacity. The allocation-based system provides implementing partners with predictable funding and flexible timing. Learn more

The Global Fund disburses initial grant funds once the design and specifications of a grant are complete and approved. Under the principle of performance-based funding, continued grant funding is dependent on proven, effective results. Since we were created in 2002, the Global Fund has disbursed more than US$50 billion (as of June 2021).
