At the Conference, in an unprecedented show of global solidarity, the Global Fund mobilized more than US$14 billion, including €1.296 billion from France, a 20% increase compared to its pledge at the Fifth Replenishment.
France remains committed to increasing its overall official development assistance to 0.55% by 2022 and to 0.7% by 2025. Health, education and gender equality are among the ten top development priorities of France. They are also major priorities for the Global Fund.
