The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is a unique, public-private partnership and international financing institution dedicated to attracting and disbursing additional resources to prevent and treat HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria. This partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and affected communities represents an innovative approach to international health financing. The Global Fund’s model is based on the concepts of country ownership and performance-based funding, which means that people in countries implement their own programs based on their priorities and the Global Fund provides financing on the condition that verifiable results are achieved. Since its creation in 2002, the Global Fund has become the main financier of programs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria, with approved funding of US$ 22.9 billion for more than 1,000 programs in 151 countries. With this commitment of $540 million, Canada’s total contribution to the Global Fund since 2002 is $1.5 billion. This is Canada’s largest contribution to a single global health initiative.
