Undermining the Global Fight
In its 2012–2016 strategy, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria changed the way it allocates financial resources. The “New Funding Model” uses a measure of disease burden and poverty to pre-determine allocations to countries for their fight against AIDS, TB, and malaria. At the same time, the Global Fund has prioritized efforts to reach socially excluded groups—men who have sex with men, sex workers, and people who inject drugs. These two objectives are at odds, and may mean that the Global Fund is pulling away from the countires and the populations that need it most.
Using available data, Undermining the Global Fight examines the impact the Global Fund’s withdrawl from middle-income countries may have on key populations, and highlights the need for increased funding of human rights–related programs.
This report is a resource for advocates working to assess the impact of the New Funding Model and to help shape the next five-year strategy.
