The Global Fund relies on voluntary financial contributions from all sectors: the private sector, foundations, individuals, and donor governments. Ninety-five percent of all Global Fund support comes from donor governments.
In September 2016, the Global Fund Fifth Replenishment Conference took place in Montréal, Canada and secured pledges of financing for the 2017-2019 period. Of the total US$12.9 billion raised at the conference, US$12 billion was pledged by donor governments.
It is important to note that the Global Fund continues its resource mobilization efforts to secure additional pledges for the current replenishment period and pledges continue to be received from some donor governments as well as from other contributors.
An updated list of all pledges and contributions can be found in our regularly updated Pledges and Contributions spreadsheet.
Information pertaining to previous Replenishments can be found in our archives.
Several countries also contribute to the Global Fund through the debt swaps agreed with donor governments under the Debt2Health initiative.
Donor governments are represented on the Global Fund’s Board, which meets at least twice annually. Of the 20 Board Members with voting rights, eight represent donor government constituencies. Donor governments also often participate in the decision-making process at the country level, through participation in the Country Coordinating Mechanism of countries in which they might be working.
It is the Global Fund’s policy that public sector monies are not “earmarked” for specific countries or programs, and that the allocation of funding is the responsibility of the Board of the Global Fund.
