Switzerland has been a strong supporter of the Global Fund since our partnership was founded in 2002. This was reaffirmed in the Dispatch on Switzerland’s International Cooperation 2021-2024. The Global Fund works closely with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation in many areas of cooperation.
Switzerland has invested CHF 323.5 million and US$7.48 million in the Global Fund to date. The President of the Swiss Confederation, Ignazio Cassis, announced a CHF 64 million pledge at the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment Conference in New York.
In 2021, Switzerland allocated CHF 50 million to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM) as part of a CHF 300 million pledge to the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator.
