Collaboration with the Global Fund

The United States is deeply committed to the success of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund) as a central element of the global response to the three diseases. Our investment in the Global Fund is a vital element of our response to the three diseases and under the Global Health Initiative.

The Global Fund is based on a unique model that relies on partnerships among governments; civil society, including community and faith-based organizations; international organizations; bilateral and multilateral donors; the private sector; and affected communities in the fight against HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria. Founded in January 2002 as an independent, non-profit foundation under Swiss law, the Global Fund operates as a financing instrument – not as an implementing entity – to attract and disburse additional resources to prevent and treat these three deadly diseases. The Global Fund allows donors to pool their resources and finance essential programs in resource-constrained settings. Through its programs, the Global Fund promotes country ownership, empowers civil society, and encourages multi-sectoral responses. The U.S. Government, as a founding member of the Global Fund and its first and largest donor, continues to play a leadership role in ensuring the success of this important international effort.

The U.S. Government is the largest single contributor to the Global Fund, having contributed approximately $5.1 billion to the Global Fund since its inception in 2001. As a sign of the U.S. Government’s deep and continued commitment to the Global Fund, at the Third Replenishment meeting in October 2010, the Obama Administration made a pledge to seek $4 billion for the Global Fund over U.S. Fiscal Years 2011-2013. This pledge is linked to a Call to Action to our fellow donors, implementing country partners and other stakeholders to develop and implement a comprehensive set of reforms to maximize the impact of Global Fund grants.
