HIV, tuberculosis and malaria cause several million deaths each year and are responsible for a high burden of disease in many countries around the world. In 2002, the international community founded the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM). In addition to preventing and treating these three diseases, the focus is on strengthening health systems, human rights and gender equality. BACKUP supports state and civil society organisations in partner countries to make efficient use of the resources provided by global financing mechanisms (GFATM, GAVI and GFF) to support their national health systems. The section below contains information about the support BACKUP can offer, the process of submitting a project proposal to BACKUP, as well as a list of countries in which BACKUP can provide technical support. Key documents are provided in English, French and Russian. Our newsletter (in English) provides current information on our work.
