The Global Fund proactively supports countries in planning for the sustainability of programs and successful transitions from Global Fund support. This is to maintain and accelerate gains against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.
A successful transition takes preparation and time. Therefore, all upper-middle income countries regardless of disease burden and all lower-middle income countries with low or moderate disease burden, should begin or build upon transition preparations during the 2020-2022 period.

To support advanced planning, the Global Fund produced a list of country components projected to transition fully from Global Fund financing by 2028 due to improvements in income classification and based on current eligibility criteria. These projections are not intended as binding determinations or statements of Global Fund policy, and are only provided as an additional resource to assist countries in preparing for transition.
The Global Fund has created guidance to assist countries in planning for the long-term sustainability of their programs and for the eventual transition from Global Fund support.
