European Commission

The European Commission is the seventh largest public donor to the Global Fund. The Commission and European Union member states, referred to as Team Europe, represent around 40% of the total funding to the Global Fund.

At the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment Conference, the European Commission announced a pledge of €715 million for the period 2023-2025. This represents a 30% increase over its pledge of €550 million to the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment (covering 2020-2022), and is the highest amount ever received from the European Commission. It is a testimony to the confidence the European Commission has in the role of the Global Fund in fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and building resilient and sustainable systems for health.

In May 2022, the European Commission pledged €150 million to the Global Fund's COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM).

Shared priorities

The European Commission is a member of 17 Country Coordinating Mechanisms – committees that manage funding requests and oversee Global Fund grants in countries where our partnership invests. The European Commission also provides bilateral support for health in 23 countries, complementing its multilateral investments through the Global Fund.

“The EU has been a strong supporter of the Global Fund from the start. And how much we have achieved together! Back in 2002 an HIV diagnosis was in most cases a death sentence. And millions died from tuberculosis and malaria. If you think about it, this is not so long ago. But thanks to initiatives like the Global Fund, it feels like a distant past.”
Her Excellency the President of the European Commission, Dr. Ursula von der Leyen, at the 7th Replenishment Pledging Session of the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, New York, September 21st, 2022
