Spain has invested €481.57 million and US$65 million in the Global Fund to date. In 2019, Spain ranked as the 12th largest public donor.
Spain pledged €100 million for the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment, covering 2020-2022, demonstrating the country’s strong commitment to end the epidemics of HIV, tuberculosis and malaria by providing access to lifesaving health services to the most vulnerable and building sustainable health systems around the world. Spain’s priorities in global health are strongly aligned with the integrated vision of the 2030 Agenda, with gender equality and human rights imperatives at its core.
During the Global Fund’s Fifth Replenishment, Spain engaged with the Global Fund through Debt2Health – a Global Fund debt swap program to raise funds for health. Spain’s debt swap agreements with Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia in 2017 freed €15.5 million to be reinvested in HIV, malaria and health systems strengthening programs in the three implementing countries. The agreements are through Spain’s Ministry of Economy.
