Equity Matters – Discussion Paper on the Global Fund’s Disease Split, Eligibility Criteria, and Allocation Methodology

1 July 2021 for the 16th Strategy Committee meeting

Year 2001 saw the birth of a new partnership that has rewritten the history of global health, uniting world leaders, communities, civil society, health workers and the private sector in solidarity to end AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Twenty years in, the partnership is estimated to have saved 38 billion lives nearly halving the number of deaths caused by AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. Yet, none of the Global Plan targets for the three diseases have been met and equity remains a major issue for communities living with and affected by all three diseases. Inequalities are driving all three epidemics, and the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened these three crises. The broad and inclusive consultations that informed the development of the new Global Fund Strategy highlighted the urgent need to ensure access to health services for those most marginalized in every country.

The Global Disease Split, Eligibility policy, Catalytic Investments and the Allocation Methodology, together are the tools used to invest to reduce these barriers and gaps sustainably and equitably. Decisions made will have a tremendous impact on the lives of persons living with or affected by the three diseases and on the impact of Global Fund investments and can help to ensure that no one is left behind.

The Communities Delegation, through this discussion paper, aims to provide a ‘reality check’, bringing the voices of those living with and affected by the three diseases to the Strategy Committee and the Board deliberations. It is based on desk review and analysis of relevant policies, previous position papers, Secretariat presentations to the Strategy Committee, and information from technical agencies. On-line consultations included semi-structured interviews with technical agencies, various constituencies, SC and Board members, community representatives and Global Fund staff.


Global Fund 45th Board Meeting Constituency Statement

9 May 2021

The Global Fund Board is amidst developing its new strategy which will define how we work, where we work, and what we work on in the upcoming years. We should not take our decisions lightly. Ultimately, our decisions translate to life or death to our communities on the ground.

Coming from the memories of our loved ones that have perished to HTM, and from our lived expertise of people living with HIV, tuberculosis and malaria, the development of the new strategy is a priority for our delegation. It is long overdue that Communities are given the leadership role in addressing HTM. Our voices, expertise, knowledge, technical capacity and unique lived experience must be recognized and valued as an equal partner in designing and implementing the next strategy.
