Join W4GF on Monday June 17 for an update on the Global Fund Replenishment

BACKGROUND

In January 2019 the Global Fund announced its fundraising target (a minimum of US$14 billion) for the next three-year cycle.  The summary of the Sixth Replenishment Investment Case describes what can be achieved by a fully funded Global Fund.

The Global Fund is an important institution that strives to support countries to address inequalities faced by women in all our diversity – these inequalities include gender and human rights related barriers to access. By working together we can ensure that affected communities are part of the solution to build more inclusive health systems that leave no one behind. France will host the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment Conference in Lyon on 10 October 2019.

The Global Fund Advocates Network (GFAN) have compiled materials that can be utilised to thank your government for their contribution and request they approach other countries to make their pledge or commitments. Check this out here and sign the Call to Action. GFAN have also created a pledge tracker to review progress towards the replenishment target goal.

WEBINAR DISCUSSION

The Global Fund will provide an update on the replenishment process and the different funding scenarios – and how the 14 billion will support each disease response – as defined by the allocation methodology approved at the most recent Global Fund  Board meeting. This webinar will enable W4GF Advocates to have a deeper understanding of the funding required and to discuss civil society mobilisation around the replenishment.
