The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

The Global Fund is an international financing institution that fights AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a 21st century approach: partnership, transparency, constant learning and results-based funding.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was created in 2002 to dramatically increase resources for the fight against the three pandemics. It spurs partnerships between government, civil society, the private sector and communities living with the diseases, the most effective way to fight these deadly infectious diseases. The Global Fund does not manage or implement programs on the ground, relying instead on local experts. It works with partners to ensure that funding serves the men, women and children affected by these diseases in the most effective way (Refer: https://www.theglobalfund.org/en).

The Developing Country NGO Delegation

The Delegation aims to contribute to and influence Global Fund (GF) policies and practices in an effort to make them continually and appropriately responsive to the needs of those affected by HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and the NGOs and CBOs providing necessary services. The defining feature of this delegation is its ability to bring relevant perspectives as implementers and representatives from recipient countries — based on the knowledge and experience of Non-Governmental Organisations/Community-Based Organisations and Faith based Organisations (NGOs/ CBOs /FBOs) and their constituencies,
