Australia's support to the Global Fund

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.

Australia has pledged a total amount of AU$1.34 billion and contributed AU$1.12 billion to the Global Fund from 2001 to date. By the end of 2023, it was placed at 13th in the Global Fund’s government donor ranking.

In September 2022, the Global Fund held the 7th replenishment conference (for 2023-25) aiming to raise a total of US$18 billion. Australia pledged AU$266 million (US$178 million), a 10% increase on its previous pledge of AU$242 million but below the AU$450 million requested by the fund.  Australia’s pledges made it the 11th largest bilateral government donor.
