Funding Model

The Global Fund / John Rae

Funding Request Applications

Country Coordinating Mechanisms apply for their allocated funding by completing and submitting a funding request.

There are five types of funding requests for the 2020-2022 funding cycle:

  • Program Continuation: enables well-performing programs which require no significant changes to continue implementation with minimal distraction
  • Tailored for Focused Portfolios: application is streamlined and designed to meet the needs of countries with smaller funding amounts and disease burden, and to ensure targeted investments have the greatest impact
  • Tailored for National Strategic Plans: documentation requirements rely primarily on suitable national strategic plans referenced in place of the funding request narrative
  • Tailored for Transition: suitable for countries approaching transition from Global Fund financing, building sustainable programs with decreasing Global Fund support
  • Full Review: applications are a comprehensive review of strategic priorities and programming in higher burden countries

Which funding request application a country should use will be communicated in allocation letters sent to Country Coordinating Mechanisms in December 2019.

The application materials on this page are for information purposes only. Each applicant should request its country-specific materials from its Fund Portfolio Manager starting in December 2019. Application forms and instructions will be made available in French and Spanish starting in late September 2019.
