Funding Model


The Global Fund makes smart, effective investments in the fight against HIV, TB and malaria through a unique, partnership-based funding model.

Our funding model recognizes the only way to end the three diseases as epidemics is by working together: the Global Fund, governments, civil society, people affected by the diseases, technical partners, the private sector and others.

Funding cycle

The funding model runs in three-year cycles that correspond with our donor replenishment cycles. In each cycle, the Global Fund allocates donor funds to eligible countries. Countries then apply for their funding through an inclusive process. After review and approval, countries implement their grants. Evaluation and oversight continues throughout implementation to monitor progress and performance.

The current funding cycle runs from 2017 through 2019. The cycle features improvements made since the previous cycle in order to have a bigger impact against the three diseases. The application and review processes, for example, are now customized according to different country circumstances to better serve people in need. See our Funding Process & Steps page for an overview.
