Funding Model

Register of Unfunded Quality Demand

Countries are encouraged to include with their funding application a request to fund priority programs that should, but cannot yet, be fully funded. This “prioritized above allocation request” is reviewed by the Technical Review Panel so that strategically focused and technically sound interventions can be registered as “unfunded quality demand.”

If additional resources become available during the allocation period, they can be used to finance investments on the Register of Unfunded Quality Demand.

The Global Fund strongly encourages all donors to consider providing additional contributions that could further fulfill the quality demand expressed by applicants.

This additional financing may come from:

Global Fund resources

  • Any additional Global Fund resources that the Global Fund Board’s Audit and Finance Committee makes available for investment in the portfolio (an annual assessment); or
  • Resources channeled from eligible donors to specific country interventions (through the Global Fund). These donors can include private donors (such as corporations, foundations and individuals) and approved public mechanisms (i.e. Unitaid and Debt2Health).

Or, it may come from:


  • Donors may also select interventions from the Register of Unfunded Quality Demand and work directly with the country to fund these programs.

All countries are eligible to receive funding for unfunded quality demand that is recorded on the register. The register facilitates possible financing but it does not guarantee it.

There is an Excel tool with interventions registered as quality demand between 2017-2019:

This register can be searched and analyzed by region, country, component and intervention in order to help potential donors more easily identify areas of need.

The register is published quarterly, if there are new entries. Interested donors can contact the Global Fund’s Private Sector Engagement team () to engage in more detailed discussions.
