Government Donors


Financial contributions from governments to the Global Fund are critical to ending AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. More than 60 countries have made contributions to the Global Fund to accelerate the fight against the three diseases. The majority of the Global Fund’s financial support comes from governments.


Each government’s pledges and contributions since the founding of the Global Fund are available in our Pledges and Contributions report:

  • Major public donors by cumulative contributions (end 2018)

Several countries also contribute to the Global Fund through debt swaps under the Debt2Health initiative.

Board representation

Donor countries are represented on the Global Fund Board. Of the 20 Board constituencies with voting rights, eight represent donor governments. Donor governments also often participate in the decision-making process at the country level through involvement in Country Coordinating Mechanisms.

As per Global Fund policy, public donors’ contributions cannot be earmarked for specific countries or programs, and the allocation of funding is the responsibility of the Global Fund Board.
