Worldwide support for cooperation partners in their work with the Global Fund

Women at community dialogue, Sierra Leone

HIV, tuberculosis and malaria are responsible for several million disease-related deaths and a high burden of disease in many countries across the globe. Founded in 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is an international financing instrument with an annual budget of nearly USD 4 billion for commitments to programmes in over 100 partner countries. The fund’s work focuses on preventing and treating the three diseases. Global Fund grants have enabled recipient countries to substantially improve and expand their health services in recent years. In order for countries to submit feasible concept notes to the Global Fund and put the funds acquired to effective use, they require specific expertise, ranging from good financial management to implementation of health services that can also reach vulnerable populations.

Since 2002, the global health programme BACKUP Health has been assisting applicant countries in using Global Fund grants more effectively and efficiently. The initiative was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and has been co-funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) since 2013.

In order to coordinate technical support, BACKUP cooperates closely with the Global Fund Secretariat and other bilateral providers of technical support, as well as with the United Nations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
