Japan has been a strong supporter of the Global Fund and is the fifth largest public donor, contributing a total of US$4.31 billion to date. In 2000, the country introduced infectious diseases to the agenda of the G8 Kyushu-Okinawa Summit, paving the way for the establishment of the Global Fund in 2002.
For the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment, Japan pledged up to US$1.08 billion, an increase from its previous pledge for the Sixth Replenishment (covering 2020-2022). This commitment for 2023-2025 demonstrates Japan’s strong commitment to help end the three diseases by 2030 and build stronger and more resilient and sustainable systems for health that would enable countries to be better prepared for future pandemics and advance towards universal health coverage.
