As a partnership of governments, civil society, technical agencies, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, the Global Fund pools the world’s resources to invest in ending AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics. Together, we can end these epidemics.

The Global Fund’s partnership approach encourages agile responses and maximum participation. Countries take the lead in determining where and how to best fight the three diseases, and partners amplify efforts to reach people affected by the diseases. Collectively, we harness the best possible experience, insights and innovation in the public and private sectors, from faster delivery of essential medicines to more effective methods to reach people most in need.

Partnering with Catholic Relief Services

Seven year-old Abdulrazim was diagnosed with a deadly form of malaria. Fortunately, he received treatment in time and is expected to be healthy again soon.

Malaria is endemic in almost all of Niger, with children and pregnant women being most at risk. The Global Fund supports the work of Principal Recipient Catholic Relief Services to implement the national malaria control strategy, which includes deploying medication, tests, insecticide-treated nets and seasonal malaria chemoprevention.

Partnering with the United Nations

A shipment of mosquito nets arrive at Kyaka II refugee settlement in Uganda.

The Global Fund works closely with developmental partners like UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to improve access to health services for refugees and other displaced communities.

Partnering with the private sector

Private sector chemists selling TB treatments in India are now working more closely with the public health sector by sharing patient treatment data. This helps increase case notification and adherence and is expected to have a huge impact in a country that accounted for 27% of new TB cases globally in 2017.
