The Global Fund’s 5th Replenishment: What, Why, How?

In 2003, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria adopted a three-year replenishment model to assure countries of sustained and predictable financial support for their programs. The goal for the upcoming Fifth Replenishment covering 2017-2019 programs is set at USD 13 billion. Ensuring a fully funded Global Fund is a shared responsibility; read more about how meeting the Fifth Replenishment target can enable countries to end the epidemics and how the private sector can make an impact here.
