The relationship between the Global Fund and China has evolved over the years to become a multifaceted and strategic partnership. The collaboration is manifested in several areas, including in support in the response to HIV, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa.
The partnership dates back to 2001, when China actively supported the process of setting up the Global Fund. China has been a longstanding member of the Global Fund Board and committees, playing a key role in defining the Global Fund’s policies and processes.
Between 2003-2014, China implemented Global Fund grants for HIV, TB and malaria. In that way, the Global Fund has contributed to China’s impressive progress in the control of HIV, TB and malaria.
Since 2014, China has transitioned from Global Fund support, becoming a donor and a strategic partner of the Global Fund.
Health is a growing area for China’s international cooperation strategy; it has become one of the major pillars supporting the country’s foreign policy. President Xi Jinping first proposed the concept of the Community of a Shared Future for Mankind in 2012. That concept has evolved to shape China's approach to global governance, giving rise to proposals and measures to support the growth and prosperity for all.
China is firmly committed to implementing the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially sustainable development goals related to health.
