Strategy Development


The Global Fund Strategy is a multiyear road map for our partnership’s future, setting out priorities for how we can accelerate progress against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria and improve global health. Now over halfway through the Strategy 2017-2022, we have started the process to develop our next strategy, which will begin in 2023.

The COVID-19 pandemic is radically altering global health, politics and economics. The impact on people living with and affected by HIV, TB and malaria and on programs to fight the three diseases will likely be tremendous. The COVID-19 pandemic could derail 20 years of progress against HIV, TB and malaria. At the same time, it has galvanized public awareness on global health security in a way that builds enormous public support for investing in health. This makes it critically important to develop the next Global Fund Strategy to be highly effective, agile and collaborative. We must unite to fight. To succeed, the next strategy needs the best possible input from across the Global Fund partnership.


We strongly encourage all stakeholders to contribute to this open consultation by identifying the most pressing challenges and opportunities in the fight against the three diseases; building resilient and sustainable systems for health; promoting and protecting human rights and gender equality; and mobilizing resources. We also want your views as to how these priorities are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and broader changes in the health and development landscape. We have prepared a series of framing questions and are eager to hear from you on these or other topics.

Please provide your input by answering the questions in our online form:

Alternatively, stakeholders may submit answers in various languages by email to .

A synthesis of the first round of input that was received by 1 September 2020 will be published on this webpage by end October 2020, following the October 2020 Strategy Committee meeting.

The Strategy development Open Consultation remains open until the end of the year, with submissions very much still encouraged. A synthesis of the next round of input received by 1 December 2020 will be included in background materials prepared for the Partnership Forums in Q1 2021.

Next steps

The Global Fund Secretariat will consolidate input received through the open consultation and post periodic updates of stakeholder feedback on this webpage. We will use input received through the open consultation to inform discussions and decision-making by the Global Fund’s Strategy Committee and Board. The final strategy document will be approved by the Board at the end of 2021.
