Global Fund Privileges and Immunities

The Board recognizes the importance of States granting to the Global Fund such privileges and immunities as necessary for the effective exercise of its functions and efficient use of its resources. The Board recommends that States consider granting privileges and immunities to the Global Fund by:

  • applying domestic legislation that specifically confers on the Global Fund status, capacities, privileges and immunities equivalent to those enjoyed by international organizations within their respective legal systems, and/or

  • adhering to the Agreement on Privileges and Immunities of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria set out in Attachment 1 - Revision 1 of the Policy and Strategy Committee’s Report to the Board (GF/B20/4), pursuant to Article 8 of that Agreement;

and requests the Secretariat to report back to the Board periodically on what measures states have taken in response to this decision.
