Australia’s contributions to the Global Fund
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) is a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics.
The Global Fund raises money from donors and then provides it to developing country governments and civil society groups on the basis of need and performance.
The Global Fund provides around 73 per cent of global funding for tuberculosis treatment, 56 per cent of global funding for malaria, and more than 50 per cent of global HIV antiretroviral treatment. On top of the US$4.2 billion annual investment in its core HIV, TB and malaria programs, the Global Fund has awarded a total of US$4 billion to more than 100 counties in response to COVID-19 to date.
Australia has pledged a total amount of $1.07 billion and contributed $961 million to the Global Fund. By the end of 2020, it was placed at 13th in the Global Fund’s government donor ranking. During the sixth replenishment (2020-2022), its pledges made it the 12th largest government donor (out of 58).
