and Public Donors


Norway is the 11th largest public donor to the Global Fund and is the most generous on a per capita basis. The country pledged NOK 2.04 billion for the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment, covering 2020-2022. In support of the Global Fund's COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM), Norway pledged NOK 285.2 million in December 2020.

Norway has been a key supporter of the Global Fund since its inception. Norway is part of the Point Seven Constituency on the Global Fund Board. Jon Lomøy, Director General of the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, held the constituency’s seat on the Board from 2017 to 2019.

Priority areas of the partnership

Norwegian development policy is built on a foundation of promoting and respecting fundamental human rights and ensuring equal access to health services. These ideals are based on strong, sustainable and nationally-owned health systems. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires more integrated approaches, and Norway works with others to create a more harmonized global health architecture that will facilitate progress toward the Agenda 2030. The key principle of “leaving no one behind” requires inclusion of marginalized and vulnerable groups, such as young people and including young key populations. Human rights, women’s rights and gender equality, climate change and the environment, and anti-corruption are cross-cutting issues for Norway.

“We must end the epidemics of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in our lifetimes. To this end, Norway will increase its contribution to the Global Fund to two billion twenty million Norwegian kroner by 2023.”
Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway (September 2019)
Norway went on to double its planned pledge increase, from NOK 2.02 billion to NOK 2.04 billion, at the Sixth Replenishment Conference in October 2019.
