The Global Fund raises funds in three-year cycles known as “replenishments.” The current Fifth Replenishment covers 2017 to 2019.
Fundraising efforts for the Fifth Replenishment began in December 2015 with a preparatory meeting in Tokyo, Japan and continued with the Fifth Replenishment Conference in Montréal, Canada in September 2016.
Approximately 500 participants joined the conference in Montréal, including all Global Fund partners, implementers, donors, nongovernmental organizations, communities affected by HIV, TB and malaria, and representatives from international organizations, the private sector and private foundations. More information is on Global Affairs Canada Fifth Replenishment Conference website. A link is below.
Demonstrating extraordinary global commitment to ending the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, donors pledged US$12.9 billion at the conference. A list of pledges is available below.
The amount raised will support programs to save 14 million lives in the three-year period beginning in 2017, bringing the total lives saved by the Global Fund partnership to 36 million by the end of 2019. Those programs will also avert up to 194 million new infections or cases of HIV, TB and malaria. Global Fund support will further catalyze US$35 billion in domestic finance for health and drive US$230 billion in economic gains.
The funding is also the basis for determining the allocation of funding to countries for 2017 to 2019.
Recognizing that need far outstrips available resources, we have an ambitious fundraising drive to raise an additional US$500 million before the next fundraising conference in 2019. We are working with existing donors, potential donors, foundations and high-net-worth individuals to encourage, grow and sustain support for the men, women and children living with the diseases.
