Development of the Global Fund Strategy (2023-2028)

The Global Fund Strategy (2023-2028): Fighting Pandemics and Building a Healthier and More Equitable World was developed through a highly consultative two-year process, guided by the Global Fund Strategy Committee and Board, and by input and evidence provided from across the Global Fund partnership, including through the Open Consultation on Strategy Development in 2020, and the 6th Partnership Forums in 2021.

The wealth of recommendations and perspectives collected throughout the Strategy development process were used to develop the Strategy Framework, which outlines the Strategy’s primary goal, objectives and sub-objectives, and then the Strategy Narrative, which describes these areas in more detail. An overview of the Strategy development process that took place over 2020-2021 is set out in the graphic below.

Open Consultation

The Open Consultation on Strategy development served as an avenue for critical input into the Strategy development process. The Open Consultation received over 325 submissions representing more than 5,500 individuals from across the Global Fund partnership, from May 2020 to 1 January 2021.
