Switzerland and the Global Fund

Switzerland, Canada and Australia share a seat on the Global Fund Board. With this representation, Switzerland plays a key role in initiating and shaping discussions on issues such as embedding the fight against the three diseases in the broader universal health coverage agenda, strengthening Country Coordinating Mechanisms, as well as promoting the role of civil society and ensuring access to quality health services to vulnerable and marginalized populations.

Switzerland is also the host country of the Global Fund, which is based in Geneva. The Global Fund is a contributor to International Geneva, an important platform for Swiss and global health policy.
