The Developing Country NGO Delegation

End It. For Good | Global Fund To Fight AIDS, TB & Malaria.

Sitting on The Global Fund Board, we influence decisions to ensure strategic responsiveness to the concerns of NGOs that serve those affected by HIV/AIDS, TB & Malaria. The Constituency has one vote on The Board. A diversity of persons from developing countries across the global south form the team. The full leadership team may consist of: a Board Member (BM), an Alternate Board Member (ABM), a Treasurer, committee members who are delegation members and a non-voting Communications Focal Point (CFP). Within the Delegation there are also Regional Communication Focal Points (RCFPs) covering the following regions: Africa, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe & Central Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Global Fund Impact

The vision of the Global Fund is to achieve a world free of the burden of HIV, TB and malaria. The strategy is to invest for impact.
