Angola is an upper-middle-income country. The country’s health budget is largely financed by domestic resources. However, to meet the goal of ending HIV, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics, Angola still needs international support. The Global Fund partnership supports part of the country’s HIV treatment program and prevention of mother-to-child transmission. The Global Fund’s TB investments support interventions such as improving diagnostics, including the rollout of GeneXpert machines, and improving treatment adherence. The Global Fund’s investments in the country also focus on key populations disproportionately affected by diseases. An effort to deliver nearly 30 million insecticide-treated mosquito nets since 2013 is contributing to the government’s national strategy to reach and maintain universal coverage of mosquito nets. The disease remains a major public health problem and causes about 7 percent of deaths in the country.
