Italy has been a strong supporter and advocate of the Global Fund from the outset, playing a major role in the Global Fund’s creation at the G8 Summit in Genoa in 2001. The first meeting of donors to replenish the Global Fund’s resources was held in Rome in 2005 under the auspices of the Italian government. Italy remains a major donor, contributing a total of €1.29 billion to date. It is the ninth largest public donor.

For the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment, covering 2023-2025, Italy pledged €185 million. This represents a 15% increase from its pledge of €161 million for the Sixth Replenishment (covering 2020-2022).

Through a 5% initiative mechanism, Italy also provides technical assistance in support to Global Fund-financed programs.
