Belgium is the 15th largest public donor to the Global Fund, with a cumulative contribution of €301.92 million to date.

In 2021, the country announced a pledge of €60 million for the period 2021-2024, for which it signed a framework arrangement with the Global Fund. Belgium’s development cooperation budget cycles differ from Global Fund’s replenishment cycles, as such the Belgian four-year pledge coincides with the last two years of the Sixth Replenishment (2021-2022) and the first two years of the Seventh Replenishment (2023-2024), corresponding with €15 million per year.

Shared priorities

Belgium and the Global Fund have a four-year partnership framework agreement for 2017-2020 based on common priorities:

  • Contribution toward the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  • Transparency and inclusion of civil society in governance and implementation
  • Rights and support for the most vulnerable groups and priority given to investing in countries with the highest disease burden and lowest economic capacity
  • Aid efficiency and alignment to national programs to fight HIV, TB and malaria in collaboration with development partners

Belgium is committed to spending at least half of its official development assistance in the least developed countries.

“Public health challenges, such as infant mortality, maternal mortality, and the fight against HIV and AIDS and malaria demonstrate the importance of effective and sustainable health systems and access to medicines and vaccines. It is therefore important to be in line with the development strategies put in place by our country partners, to ensure together that resources are allocated in the most effective manner and to share a political commitment to deliver sustainable results.”
Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance and Development Cooperation, Belgium
