Australia is a longstanding partner of the Global Fund, contributing a total AUD 838.21 million to date. Australia pledged AUD 242 million for the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment. This commitment, covering 2020-2022, demonstrates Australia’s recognition of the role that its financial contributions play in fighting diseases and in supporting countries to build resilient and sustainable systems for health, which are essential in preparing for emerging health threats in the Indo-Pacific region.
Australia was the second country to join the Global Fund’s debt conversion initiative, Debt2Health. In 2016, Indonesia agreed with Australia to invest the equivalent of AUD 37.5 million to support its national TB program through the Global Fund, in exchange for Australia’s cancellation of the equivalent of AUD 75 million of Indonesia’s debt to Australia.
